On street

Under the Transport Operations (Road Use Management) Act 1995 motorists are not permitted to park their heavy vehicles on streets in residential or built up areas.

Council’s Technical Services Officers and Queensland Police Officers will attend to on-street heavy vehicle parking complaints.
