We monitor the route and movement of heavy and wide abnormal loads through the borough.
Hauliers are required by law to provide Highways England with a minimum of 2 working days notice of any movement of abnormal loads. Loads exceeding a certain weight or height may have a longer minimum notice period.
Highways England will notify us if the route travels through the London Borough of Hounslow. We do not acknowledge the notice unless there is a problem identified with the desired route, in which case the haulier will be contacted.
For further information regarding what is classified as an abnormal load, or for the online notification form (ESDEL), please click here.
