Transport for NSW is seeking feedback on the draft NSW Heavy Vehicle Access Policy to ensure access decisions remain responsive to changing markets, emerging technologies and the increasing freight task.

The NSW Heavy Vehicle Access Policy, originally released in 2018, features a new strategic approach to heavy vehicle access in NSW. Significant improvements in heavy vehicle access have been achieved, including unlocking key freight routes and greater access for higher productivity vehicles.

The draft Policy sets out five policy pillars to enable a future focused freight network:

1. agile and resilient networks

2. innovative vehicles

3. streamlined access

4. telematics and data

5. strong partnerships.

The Policy also sets out:

  • proposed access priorities and Performance Based Standards (PBS) network opportunities
  • networks and access conditions for heavy vehicle classes
  • examples of innovative vehicle design templates.

  • It has been developed based on research and consultation across industry, agencies, local and state government. Read the 2022 consultation summary report.
