View the Over Dimensional (OD) Route Network map (External link)

Victoria’s Over Dimensional (OD) Vehicles network map. This map shows the preferred network of arterial and municipal roads that cater for OD combinations that exceed 5.0 metres high or 5.0 metres wide or 30.0 metres long or 100.0 tonnes gross mass. These OD routes have been chosen because they have minimal height and width impediments or mass restrictions.

The routes are mapped in different colours for specific OD routes. The (broken lines) on certain routes in the regional network indicate proposed OD routes. Routes 5A and 5B (light blue) in the metropolitan network are alternate routes to be used only when authorised  by VicRoads Permits Section

  • OD Route 5A is an alternate route for OSOM combinations that are not permitted to travel via the West Gate bridge.
  • OD Route 5B is an alternate route for OSOM vehicles that are not permitted to travel via the Dandenong Bypass.

NOTE: This map is for information only and does not reflect temporary changes to the network such as road closures or detours. Operators of OD vehicles must check the VicTraffic map on the VicRoads website for road closures and road conditions prior to travel to ensure clear passage. Travelling off the preferred network requires written road manager approval or direction by an authorised officer.

Access for these OD vehicles is managed through conditions such as escorts and travel time restrictions stated in an OD Vehicle Permit. To obtain a permit to operate an OD vehicle, please submit your Class 1 permit application via the NHVR website (External link).
