This year, Ukravtodor will not introduce seasonal traffic restrictions for trucks at elevated air temperatures. This was reported by the State Agency for Highways of Ukraine.

“During the summer period, freight transport weighing up to 40 tons can move on the roads of the country without restrictions.. Ukravtodor will not introduce seasonal traffic restrictions for trucks with a total weight of up to 40 tons during the daytime at elevated air temperatures,” the report says..

The agency notes that the decision was made due to the situation in the country with the reorientation of exports to the road network and significant changes in logistics..

“Before the full-scale Russian invasion, Ukraine exported mainly by sea. Now, due to the blocking of ports, the country has redirected the flow of goods to railways and roads.. We understand the importance of logistics today, therefore, in order to avoid interruptions in the transportation of vital cargo, seasonal restrictions are not introduced this year,” the message says..

At the same time, Ukravtodor reminds that the movement of trucks must be carried out in compliance with weight parameters both in terms of total mass and axle load at any time of the day.. According to the norms, the maximum weight of a cargo vehicle for transportation on the roads of the country is 40 tons..

No. 879, on public roads of national importance, Ukravtodor will inform carriers, organizations and interested departments about the decisions made.
