Whenever a transport vehicle meets the requirements for a coordinated over-dimensional move (exceeds: 5.3 metres in height or 4.9 metres in height (house move) or 7.3 metres in width) a Coordinated Over-Dimensional Move permit is required.
This allows The City of Calgary to coordinate the move with their service partners – ENMAX (electrical utility), TELUS Communications, Shaw Communications and the Calgary Police Service – to monitor and/or adjust utility and communication lines, adjust traffic control signs and signals, and manage traffic control. Coordinated over-dimensional moves help ensure the safe passage of these transport vehicles and their loads through the city, while minimizing interference with the normal flow of traffic.
Please review The Playbook for Coordinated Over-Dimensional Moves. It is a comprehensive guide for the requirements and responsibilities of the over-dimensional move process.
