Legal access restriction for Heavy goods vehicles.

See access=* for values.

Use maxspeed:hgv=* to tag a speed limit that only applies to heavy good vehicles.

Around the world

In most countries, heavy goods vehicles are goods vehicles (goods=*) with a maximum allowed weight above 3.5 tonnes.

The maximum allowed weight, also known as the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) or gross vehicle mass (GVM) is the maximum permitted weight of the vehicle at full load, as specified by the manufacturer. Note that not all countries (explicitly) differentiate between light and heavy goods vehicles. Also, a few countries do not follow the UNECE resolution on vehicle classes (see Vehicle categories) and establish a different weight than 3.5 tonnes:

  • Australia[1]: 4.5 tonnes
  • United states and Puerto Rico[2]: 10,001 pounds (=4.536 tonnes)
  • Bolivia[3]: a load capacity of 2.5 tonnes

Even though a goods vehicle is depicted, usually the sign applies to all vehicles. Otherwise it would be maxlength:hgv=10.

This is not a weight restriction (like Zeichen 262 - Verbot für Fahrzeuge deren tatsächliches Gewicht eine gewisse Grenze überschreitet (600x600); StVO 1992.svg), but a restriction for goods vehicles with a maximum allowed weight above the depicted value!
