The company Autostrada Brescia Verona Vicenza Padova pays particular attention to hauliers. We respect the work of hauliers, which is why we are dedicated to providing them with a tailored service. We are also committed to constantly guaranteeing safety and comfort along our motorway.
NO OVERTAKING TO HEAVY GOODS VEHICLES > 12 T
The Company imposes an overtaking ban on heavy goods vehicles with authorised loads of more than 12 tonnes.
This ban, which is clearly indicated to drivers, is applicable for both directions of the motorway, Monday to Friday from 07.00 to 21.00, between Vicenza Ovest and Vicenza Est.
An exception is made to the aforementioned ban in the following cases:
- when entering the motorway from tollbooths and service/rest areas
- when overtaking exceptional transport
- when there are tailbacks caused by accidents or roadworks
This ban is temporarily suspended on the stretch of motorway between Montecchio and Vicenza Ovest owing to long-standing roadworks.
OBLIGATION OF WINTER EQUIPMENT
The stretch of motorway between BRESCIA OVEST and SIRMIONE is characterised by frequent ups and downs which can cause considerable setbacks for the flow of traffic during the winter when it snows and when temperatures drop, despite the preventive measures taken against these weather conditions.
For this stretch of motorway, a specific decree has therefore been implemented making it mandatory to use winter tyres or to have snow chains or another approved non-slip system in your vehicle, from 15th November until 15th April. Dedicated signs have been installed along the motorway.
The updated calendar of the ban on the circulation of commercial vehicles (buses excluded) with a maximum authorized total weight of over 7.5t is available.

The Brescia Est parking area is in a strategic location: situated at the Brescia Est motorway exit, next to the A4 Motorway (Milan-Venice) and the European Corridors no. 5 and 8, and just a stone’s throw away from the city of Brescia and the airports of Montichiari, Verona and Bergamo. This is the ideal place to rest during long journeys and for compulsory driver breaks.
Transport classed as “exceptional” (art. 10 of Italy’s New Highway Code), represent an important part of the transport system as they are widespread and have a big impact on safety and road conditions. The Company has a dedicated department that grants specific authorisations to operators who file requests for exceptional transits or transport along the stretches of motorway and ring roads falling under our responsibility and/or on the interconnected network.
