New online platform makes it easier to get oversize load permits in Grey County
Grey County is excited to announce the launch of a new online permitting system for individuals and businesses transporting oversize and overweight loads on Grey County-owned roads. The public can now apply for both single trip and annual permits through the County's website at www.grey.ca/resident-services/county-roads/road-permits-and-forms.
The new permitting system is powered by the Transnomis Permit Central platform. Applicants can route their trip through other municipalities that also use the Transnomis system, streamlining the process and making it easier to obtain permits across multiple jurisdictions. In addition to simplifying the permitting process, the online system allows for electronic payments, making it more convenient for applicants to pay for their permits.
“We’re excited to offer this new system to the public,” said Grey Warden, Brian Milne. “It will make it easier for businesses and individuals to obtain permits for oversize and overweight loads, saving valuable time for applications, and County administrative staff.”
Permits are a tool to help ensure haulers use the safest and most appropriate routes possible when transporting large loads. A permit is required when transporting loads on Grey County roads that exceed typical sizes. Dimensions include a maximum width of 2.6 metres, length of 12.5 metres for single vehicles or 23.5 metres for a combined truck and trailer, or 4.15 metres high. Maximum weights are determined by axle as listed in the Highway Traffic Act.
With Permit Central up and running, Grey County will expand the number of permits and applications available through the platform.
