What is the Weigh Right Programme?

At the NZ Transport Agency, we’re aiming for a road system free of death and serious injury.

We also want to enable a productive land transport system, which supports a level playing field for the heavy vehicle industry.

The Weigh Right Programme is one way in which we are delivering this. The programme is installing roadside technology and developing intelligent software to direct potentially overload vehicles into 12 commercial vehicle safety centres (formerly weigh stations) throughout New Zealand.

Moving forward, we will be increasing the number of locations and enhancing the technology to screen across multiple areas of vehicle and driver compliance.

It’s about safer roads, a level playing field for industry and smarter regulation.
