PBS vehicles now required to be enrolled in either RIM, IAP or TMA when operating at General, Concessional and Higher Mass Limits in the state
Transport for NSW has introduced new network conditions for Performance Based Standards (PBS) vehicles in the state.
Under the changes it is now a road access condition that all PBS vehicles/combinations that meet Tier 1 bridge formulae be enrolled in a minimum of Road Infrastructure Management (RIM) when operating at General Mass Limits (GML) or Concessional Mass Limits (CML).
Additionally, it is now mandatory that all PBS vehicles/combinations that meet Tier 1 bridge formulae be enrolled in either the Intelligent Access Program (IAP) or Telematics Monitoring Application (TMA) when operating at Higher Mass Limits (HML).
PBS vehicles/combinations at all performance levels (Level 1-4) that do not meet Tier 1 bridge formulae for the level of access being requested (Tier 2 and/or Tier 3) are required to be enrolled in either the IAP or TMA when operating at GML, CML or HML.
PBS Level 3 vehicles/combinations operating on approved roads east of the Newell Highway are required to nominate vehicles of an operator who holds accreditation for the Maintenance Management module of the National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme (NHVAS).
Transport for NSW has published an interactive PBS map to provide the enforceable network for operators of compliant PBS vehicles/combinations seeking to operate in the state.
For PBS vehicles eligible to operate on approved routes shown in the PBS map, this will be stated on the NHVR issued access permit and/or in the National PBS Notice.
