Transport ministers approve greater access to the road network for high volume vehicles
Some news from NTC Australia:
Australian transport ministers have approved amendments to the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) to allow greater access to the network for high volume vehicles.
Vehicles approved to level 1 of the Performance Based Standards (PBS) will be allowed general access to the road network if their gross mass is below 42.5 tonnes once the amendments are passed by the Queensland Parliament.
This follows ministerial endorsement of the NTC’s policy proposal at the May 2017 Transport and Infrastructure Council meeting paving the way for economy-wide benefits of up to $1 billion per annum.
