The Municipality of Leamington has launched a new online application and payment system for Oversized Load Permits.  

Understanding Oversized Load Permits 

Oversized Load Permits are essential for any vehicle or load exceeding the standard dimensions outlined by the Highway Traffic Act R.S.O. 1990 and its subsidiary regulations. The need for such permits arises under the following conditions: 

  • Width: Exceeding 2.6 meters (8.5 feet) 

  • Length: The combined length of the truck and load exceeds 23 meters (75.46 feet) 

  • Height: Over 4.15 meters (13.5 feet) 

  • Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW): Surpassing 36,364 kg (80,000 lbs) 

Our Commitment 

In Leamington, we are committed to facilitating the safe and efficient transportation of oversized loads. Our goal is to ensure the smooth operation of these transports, preserve the integrity of our roadways and guarantee public safety. To achieve this, we emphasize the importance of compliance with the permit requirements by all relevant parties before initiating the transportation of oversized loads. 

Important Notice for Applicants 

Applicants should be aware that any works proposed within Provincial or County rights of way will continue to require the necessary permits from the respective authorities. This online system focuses solely on permits required for Leamington municipal roadways.
