As the operator and maintainer of the high-profile road network in Austria, we issue a statement to the responsible authorities for every special transport request affecting our road network. Our statement is incorporated in the permit, which is issued by the responsible provincial government.
During the process of issuing statements, the special transport request is evaluated in technical and statical terms and in terms of traffic management. By the specification of requirements and constraints, it is ensured that all safety and maintenance standards are met on the affected sections of our road network. Furthermore, there are certain periods in which it is not allowed to carry out special transports (for example during rush hours and peak traffic periods like the start of the holidays or during major events). Additionally, special transports, depending on their dimensions, have to register with ASFINAG’s facilities in advance to the scheduled transport.
