The NZ Transport Agency’s Weigh Right Programme will reduce heavy vehicle overloading.
It will level the playing field for the transport industry, improve productivity and road safety, and ensure that heavy vehicle operators pay their fair share of road maintenance.
The programme will install road side technology and develop intelligent software to direct potentially overloaded vehicles into 12 weigh stations throughout New Zealand. To do this, four existing weigh stations will be upgraded and an additional eight will be built on new sites.
Further, to support weight compliance, the programme is building a heavy vehicle permits system. It will be easy for our customers to use and will process and manage heavy vehicle permit information efficiently.
