This notice is the major authorising instrument for road train access in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Victoria. It works in conjunction with the National Class 2 Road Train Operator’s Guide (PDF, 1.2MB).
The NHVR worked closely with state and local government road managers to improve road train access by expanding access to include:
- a new Victorian road network for 36.5m A-doubles
- access for the first time (under notice) in South Australia for 30m A-doubles, 36.5m B-triples and AB-triples, and rigid trucks towing two dog trailers
- consolidated access to a number of Type 2 road trains on a single Type 2 road train network.
The new national notice also introduces simplified and more nationally consistent conditions for road trains, supporting more seamless cross-border access.
For vehicles or routes not covered by the notice, additional means of access include:
