Commercial vehicle safety centres (CVSCs), once called weigh stations, are sites where officers can safely carry out thorough inspections, including vehicle weight and road user charges (RUC), logbook accuracy and driver impairment.
Existing CVSCs are being upgraded, and new sites added, to create 12 CVSCs on high volume routes throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. There will be 8 regular size CVSCs and 4 larger ones.
We’ll let you know about specific sites near the time work starts on them.
