If you intend to move an abnormal load or need advice concerning the movement of loads in Newcastle, please contact our Envirocall staff by:


High, heavy or wide loads are known as abnormal loads.

We require a clear two days notice before allowing the movement of loads up to 80 tonnes. For loads over 80 tonnes, 2.9 metres wide or 18.3 metres long, notice must also be given to Northumbria Police.

For further details about the definitions of abnormal loads or the notification procedures in place please go to the Department of Transport website.
