Road height restrictions

Low clearance bridges and structures are struck by vehicles resulting in damage to the structure and delays to the road network, and public transport when railway bridges are struck. Bridge strikes have unfortunately resulted in serious and fatal injuries to vehicle drivers, passengers and to other road users.

This data includes information about the locations and the signed clearance of low clearance bridges and structures including but not limited to buildings and tunnels, less than and equal to 4.6m, owned by Brisbane City Council. The extent of the data covers Council's local government area including the Department of Transport and Mains Road (DTMR) and Transurban networks but excludes private roads including Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) and Port of Brisbane (PB).

The low clearance height restrictions information given is correct and current to the best of our knowledge, but we do not guarantee accuracy. This information is provided as a community service by the Brisbane City Council.

Brisbane City Council does not guarantee that the information posted is always current or correct. This data is not and does not purport to be a complete guide – it is a point in time and the data is constantly changing as road works change the clearance under bridges and structures. There may be errors or omissions.

This information does not provide a permit for over-dimensional vehicles, and does not guarantee a safe route for your vehicle and load.

This dataset uses Brisbane City Council's Open Spatial Data website to provide extra features for viewing and downloading the data. The first two resources in this dataset are labelled HTML and they each have a Go to button. Clicking a Go to button will open a web page in a new tab. The Go to button on the first resource will open our Open Spatial Data website that provides many features for viewing, interacting with, and downloading data. The Go to button on the second resource will open the ArcGIS REST Services Directory website and display the spatial metadata for the dataset. Most of our spatial datasets have four more resources. The four resources are labelled: CSV, GeoJSON, SHP, and KML, and all four have a Download button. Clicking the Download button on the CSV resource will download the attribute data in a table. Clicking the Download button on the GeoJSON, SHP or KML resource will download the data in a spatial file.
