The Australian freight task is growing. Industry has told us that up to 80 per cent of vehicle trips are constrained by the volumetric storage capacity of the vehicle (i.e. ability to fit freight into the allowable length, height and width), rather than mass limits.
This project aims to increase the productivity of the road network and freight fleet by sharing good practice and helping road managers identify ways to improve the productivity of their road network.
Proposed laws will be considered by Australia’s transport ministers at their next meeting scheduled for November 2017 and are likely to take effect in 2018.
