Loading Zones are parking areas set aside for short-term use by vehicles when loading or unloading goods in the course of business. A bus may also use a Loading Zone to set down or pick-up passengers.
The time limit for all loading zones in Tasmania is 30 minutes as set by the Road Rules 2009 Regulation 179. Council’s may choose a shorter time and, if so, display this on the sign.

- 17 Best Street, Devonport
