Transport of High Loads (Guide)


Note: File may be downloaded after completion of your purchase

The EEA Guide for Transport of High Loads through Electricity Network Areas in New Zealand ("Guide") specifies good practice for the safe transport of high loads through network areas. This Guide was prepared by representatives of the electricity supply industry in consultation with the heavy haulage industry. It promotes consistent processes and practice among both network owners and also haulage contractors for Request and Approval of high loads transport. It recommends separation distances between high loads and overhead electrical conductors and it recommends trigger heights for applying control measures suitable for safe transit of such loads.

Additional to the downloadable Guide, model Request and Approval forms are available in MS Word. Guide users may adapt these to individual company use since this should support more uniform administration of Requests and Approvals for all parties involved.

The EEA welcomes feedback on the Guide. This should be emailed to
