Accident towing allocation map

To avoid multiple tow trucks arriving at an accident scene, and ensure that accidents are attended to as quickly as possible, an accident allocation system operates in the Melbourne Controlled Area and the Self-management area of Geelong.

Controlled Area - Melbourne

Tow trucks in the Melbourne Controlled Area (including Mornington Peninsula) are allocated by roster to attend accident scenes. This is done by the Accident Allocation Centre, managed under contract to VicRoads. Tow trucks in the Melbourne Controlled Area may attend an accident scene for vehicles with a gross vehicle mass less than 4 tonnes only after receiving an allocation number.

Self-management Area - Geelong

Tow trucks in the Self-management Area of Geelong may attend an accident scene for vehicles with a gross vehicle mass less than 4 tonnes only after receiving an allocation from the Geelong Accident Allocation Centre.

The map below shows the accident allocation areas of Melbourne and Geelong.
