CHAPTER 6.0HEAVY HAUL OVERWEIGHT GUIDELINES AND PERMITS, EXTRAORDINARY LOADS6.1 DEFINITIONS6.1 DEFINITIONS“Bridge Formula” is 30 x Wheelbase (cm) 18,000 maximum permissible weight in kilograms– also see S.6.3.2(B)(iii).“CTAR” means the Commercial Transport Regulations.“Elk Valley Area” means the area from the BC/AB Border on Highway 3 to all mine sites onHighway 43 and Corbin Road 26.“Extraordinary load” means vehicles and/or loads that require an Extraordinary Load Approvalbecause they: Exceed 64,000 kg on non-approved overload routes (load must be stripped or fully reducedin order to obtain an approval) Exceed 85,000 kg Are an oversize non-reducible load travelling more than 110 km Exceed 4.4 m wide, except on pre-approved routes described in the CVSE 1001 or 1002forms Exceed 4.88 m high (5.33 m in the Peace River Region), or exceed any policy height limit Exceed 46 m in overall length (except Lower Mainland, see 6.4.2)“Lowbed semi-trailer” means a semi-trailer with a depressed deck area.Folding gooseneck lowbed semi-trailers (single drop scissorneck) are considered lowbed semitrailers for both drop deck and flat deck operations. Some long heavy haul loads can be transportedmore safely (less rear overhang) by utilizing the flat deck option of this trailer. Single drop anddouble drop trailers are also considered lowbeds.Tilt deck trucks and pony trailers are not considered lowbed semi-trailers.“Lower Mainland Area” means the area from Hope West to Horseshoe Bay, from the BC/USBorder North to Hwy 7 and Hwy 1 (North Shore)“Non-reducible load” for overweight permits, means any load or vehicle exceeding applicableweight limits that, if separated into smaller loads or vehicles, would:a) Compromise the intended use or destroy the value of the load or vehicle;b) Require more than 8 hours to dismantle using appropriate equipment.c) Result in the vehicle being greatly underweight if one component were removed, where theload consists of only two large components, and the total weight being permitted does notexceed 3,500 kg.In addition, up to two unattached additional pieces which belong to a component or machine (e.g.,buckets, blades, C frames, rippers, etc.) may be transported on the same vehicle and the combinedload will still be considered non-reducible, provided that: the gross combined weight of the loadand vehicle does not exceed the preapproved weight rating (64,000 kg except as shown in section6.3.3) on any portion of its approved route.COMMERCIAL TRANSPORT PROCEDURES MANUAL August 2021 Page 6-1

CHAPTER 6.0HEAVY HAUL OVERWEIGHT GUIDELINES AND PERMITS, EXTRAORDINARY LOADS6.2 GENERAL and 6.3 HEAVY HAUL“Peace River Area” comprises an area from the BC/AB Border on the East to the Pine Pass(Azuzetta Lake) in the West, and from the Monkman Park area in the South to the BC/YT and NWTBorders in the North. The Peace River at Taylor further divides this area into the North and SouthPeace areas respectively.“Permanently mounted equipment” means aa) heavy duty crane mounted on a truck tractor or truck,b) hydraulic or main-engine winch, power-driven off the engine,c) chassis-mounted rotating ready-mix concrete drum,d) dump box with tilt cylinders or a multi-stage tilt cylinder mounted behind the cab,e) liquid tank if 100% of a liquid tanker truck’s payload and capacity consists of a liquid load,orf) liquid tank associated with hydro-vac equipment if it is designed and used to excavatetrenches and holes hydraulically and vacuum the loosened material into the liquid tank, butdoes not include conventional vacuum truck equipment; (Division 1 Commercial TransportRegulations)“Super single tire” means a non-steering tire that has a tire width of 445 mm or larger and abead diameter of 49.5 cm or larger and that meets the requirements of the Motor Vehicle Tire SafetyRegulations (Canada); (Division 1 Commercial Transport Regulations)6.2 GENERALThe issuance of oversize/overload permits presents problems as each move is governed by thebridge and route restrictions and the various vehicle configurations presently in use.All heavy haul equipment (semi-trailers, trailers, jeeps, boosters, etc.), transporting non-reducibleloads, will be issued permits using the criteria set out in this chapter.Page 6-2 COMMERCIAL TRANSPORT PROCEDURES MANUAL August 2021
