The Government is seeking feedback on proposed changes to the regulatory framework for heavy vehicles and invites comment on the public consultation (yellow) draft of Land Transport Rule: Vehicle Dimensions and Mass (2016).
The proposed Rule (Land Transport Rule: Vehicle Dimensions and Mass 2016) is designed to deliver productivity improvements, greater regulatory efficiency and reduced compliance costs without compromising the road transport system and road user safety outcomes. The goals of the main changes are outlined below.
If you wish to comment on this draft Rule, please see the page headed ‘Making a submission’. The deadline for submissions is 5pm, Friday 12 August 2016.
The proposed Land Transport Rule: Vehicle Dimensions and Mass 2016 is intended to replace the current Rule, which dates from 2002.
Consultation on the proposed changes is being carried out to ensure that legislation is sound and robust and that the Rules development process takes account of the views of, and the impact on, people affected by proposed Rule changes.
The proposed changes, for your comment, are set out in:
(a) an overview, which sets proposed Rule changes in context; and
(b) the consultation (yellow) draft of Land Transport Rule: Vehicle Dimensions and Mass 2016 (‘the draft Rule’).
Please read the overview carefully and consider the effects that the proposed Rule and regulation changes would have on you or your organisation.
