Queensland Globe

Queensland Globe allows you to quickly identify up-to-date approved heavy vehicle routes and restrictions in an interactive way across various devices. You can create, download and print map specific to the routes and restrictions that apply to you.

You still need to ensure that all conditional and route requirements are met in accordance with the relevant gazette notices and permit-based schemes.

If your vehicle is outside of mass or dimensional limits, you will need a permit or operate under a notice. Class 2 vehicles such as a B-double or road train can only operate under a notice, or a permit specifying the route of operation.

Access Queensland Globe for approved routes and restrictions for:

  • B-double vehicles up to 23m
  • B-double vehicles up to 25m
  • Road train type 1
  • Road train type 2
  • Higher mass limits vehicles
  • Performance-based standards scheme
  • 1 Tonne Tri-Axle Mass Transfer Allowance.

To get the most out of Queensland Globe's features we recommended that you watch the Queensland Globe video tutorials.

If you use your own mapping software you can download all the approved routes found in Queensland Globe, in a variety of formats, from Queensland Spatial Catalogue - Qspatial. Don't forget to download both the routes and restrictions data.
