Passing through the control areas: systematic checking of Tunnel access conditions for heavy vehicles

Heavy vehicles, before entering the Tunnel, must receive authorization at the regulation and control areas of Passy-Le Fayet (France) and Aosta (Italy).

Their compliance with tunnel transit conditions is certified by a pass, issued after the dimensions of the vehicle, the nature of its load (dangerous materials are prohibited), and the European pollution category (transit is prohibited for Euro 0, Euro1*  and Euro 2** , i.e. vehicles registered before October 1st  2001) have been checked.

Checking the nature of the goods being carried is the responsibility of the Highway Police (on the Italian side) and the customs service (on the French side).
