November 2017 Update
The HVROPO will be closed over the Christmas and New Year break; between Saturday 23rd December 2017 and Monday 1st January 2018 (inclusive).
September 2017 Update
Effective from the 25th September 2017 Queensland Transport and Main Roads (TMR), in line with the process in place for the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR), have decided not to provide clients with the TMR Permit number until the Permit has been finalised and issued. Accordingly, the Queensland Police Service (QPS) will no longer be able to accept any Wide Load Escort applications without a valid, issued TMR Permit.
In line with this new process, the QPS has also determined that an application must include all third-party approvals at the time of application, or it will not be able to be processed.
An outline of the new procedure, as well as contact details for Third Party approvers and a guideline for what approvals will be required, is available at QPS Wide Load Escort Applications.
Applications are still to be submitted to this office via email at least; (a) Three (3) clear business prior to the requested date of travel for single-day travel, or (b) Five (5) clear business days prior to the requested date of travel for multiple-day travel (ie, overnight stops).
Our Email address is changing - Please be advised that this office now has a shorter email address available; HVROPO@police.qld.gov.au. Emails sent to either HVROPO@police.qld.gov.au or HeavyVehicleRoadOperationsProgramOffice@police.qld.gov.au will both be received.
Note: if you do not receive any return correspondence at least three (3) business days prior to departure, please follow up with a phone call to confirm your application/correspondence has been received.
