Vehicle overloading is considered as one of the most substantial concerns in road transport due to a possible road surface damage. This paper investigates the vehicle overloading at the Muar-Malacca roads. The main objectives for this study were to determine types of vehicles overloaded, the percentage of overloaded vehicles and an average equivalency (EF) for all vehicles. Secondary data were collected from fixed weighbridge station by considering gross vehicle weight, maximum permissible gross vehicle and axle load for the period of two years. The results show that heavy vehicle with 2 axles was the most overloaded vehicle. Category 1% -25% overloaded vehicles had the highest percentage. The calculated EF was 3.14 higher than standard EF. Thus, the road needs to redesigned in order to resist current load to prevent road damage in short term.
