The Unimog fleet, DELWP's primary mode of dealing with emergency situations across Victoria, are rigid trucks that weigh 6.5 tonnes on the steer and 8.5 tonnes on the drive axles (with single 395 mm tyres).  

Roads shown as approved (green) or conditionally approved (orange) are pre-approved for the Unimog 4000M Fire Truck but must operate under a 12-month NHVR Class 1 permit. Click on any orange route to show conditions that may apply.

All roads shown as restricted (red) require road manager approval for access by permit, with the exception of signed detours. Unimog operators must check the VicRoads website for road closures and road conditions prior to travel to ensure clear passage. It is permitted to travel off route only if the road is marked with detour signage or if directed by an authorised officer. Click on any red route to show why the route is restricted.

Note: Operators must comply with mass and height clearance restrictions as indicated by symbols (red dots for mass and orange diamonds for height)

Unimogs are also covered and permitted to operate without a permit under the Victoria Class 1 Emergency Management Mass & Dimension Exemption Notice 2018 (No.1), but only on approved (green) or conditionally approved (orange) roads shown on the Emergency Response Combination Network (46t, 3m wide, 4.5m high, 19m long)(External link).
