High Load Permit

Before transporting a vehicle or load over five metres in height you’ll need to get a High Load Permit from Horizon Networks. Our power lines are located about five metres above the ground so if you’re planning to transport a vehicle or load higher than our power lines, it may be necessary for us to lift the lines in certain areas, or for one of our contracting staff to escort you along part of your journey.

If you fail to obtain a High Load Permit and cause damage to our network, you could be liable for significant costs for repairs.
