OSOM access update for Cunninghams Gap

Class 1 OSOM heavy vehicles operating under an NHVR issued permit up to 7.5m wide and 60m long may continue to use the Cunninghams Gap alternate route during specified times, following an extension to OSOM access on the route.

These operators can use Cunninghams Gap between the hours of 8pm – 5am Monday to Friday (night travel only) through to January 13, 2025.

Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has advised that to support industry and OSOM movements during the Bremer River Bridge (westbound) remediation period, current conditions of operations will continue beyond Sunday June 30, 2024, for heavy vehicles on the Cunningham Highway travelling through the project site at Cunninghams Gap (between Tregony and Mount Edwards).

This approach will provide Class 1 OSOM combinations up to 4.5m in width and 35m in length to utilise the Cunningham Highway route through the project work site during daytime hours for the duration of the Cunninghams Gap reconstruction period.

Temporary short duration increased conditions of operation restrictions may apply after January 13, 2025 to OSOM movements, which if required will be communicated with notice.

Conditions of Operation

Oversize loads must email three days prior to travel to notify the project team of your intention to travel through the work site.

Contact the project team on channel UHF40 if you require assistance to travel through the site.

To apply for permits to access this route, please visit the NHVR Portal 

Operators are also advised to check the Conditions of Operation Database before starting their journey.
