Feedback Request on the National Class 1 Agricultural Vehicle and Combination Notice Issues Paper

The NHVR issues paper clearly outlines that current regulations do not take into account the nature of the agricultural fleet, nor the quick decisions farmers need to make when managing crops. However, if adopted, the proposals contained in the NHVR issues paper would still require most movements of oversized agricultural machinery to be covered by permits to travel on public roads. Therefore, the proposals do not go far enough to address this key problem with the existing regulations – the key dimensions remain largely unchanged.
