Land Transport Rule: Vehicle Dimensions and Mass 2016
In November 2016, the Vehicle Dimensions and Mass (VDAM) Rule 2016 was signed, coming into effect on 1 February 2017.
The rule sets vehicle size and weight limits, and vehicle configuration requirements, with a focus on heavy vehicles.
It is intended to strike a reasonable balance between the risks that heavy vehicles present to public safety, and the efficient operation of the heavy vehicle fleet within the constraints imposed by the road network.
As a result of the new rule, there are updates to a number of sections in the VIRM.
