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

Vehicles that have an overall MAM (maximum authorised mass) exceeding 3.5 ton, 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 vehicles that have an overall MAM exceeding 3.5 tons classified Euro 0, Euro 1* and Euro 2** (i.e. vehicles registered before October 1st, 2001), and, from January 1st 2019, for vehicles used for transporting goods that have an overall MAM exceeding 7.5 tons classified Euro 3 (i.e. vehicles registered before October 1st, 2006).

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).
