Im­proved ac­cess for driv­ers

Big Rigs - - NEWS -

HAY run­ners have been given a help­ing hand by the NSW Govern­ment with a re­lax­ing of the rules around the usual per­mits.

The new NSW Class 3 Drought As­sis­tance Di­men­sion Ex­emp­tion No­tice means more hay can be trans­ported per truck­load, which also re­duces costs for farm­ers.

Drought ap­pli­ca­tions are be­ing pri­ori­tised through the Na­tional Heavy Ve­hi­cle Reg­u­la­tor (NHVR) por­tal, by in­clud­ing the word DROUGHT in the ref­er­ence section of the ap­pli­ca­tion.

The new NSW Class 3 Drought As­sis­tance Di­men­sion Ex­emp­tion No­tice will al­low el­i­gi­ble ve­hi­cles trans­port­ing hay to travel un­der no­tice and with­out a per­mit, in­clud­ing B-dou­bles up to 26 me­tres long, up to 2.83m wide on all ap­proved roads and up to 4.6m high, on the ap­proved 4.6m high net­work.

Road trains are also al­lowed on more roads than usual.
