NSW roads minister pushes IAP

The Hon Michael Daley MP, Minister for Roads (R), with Transport Certification Australia CEO Chris Koniditsiotis at the Livestock and Bulk Carriers Association Conference, Bathurst NSW.
Transport Certification Australia Limited (TCA), the company administering the Intelligent Access Program (IAP), has welcomed the recent endorsement of the IAP from NSW Minister for Roads, Michael Daley MP at the Livestock and Bulk Carriers Association (LBCA) Conference in Bathurst.
Minister Daley expressed his confidence in the IAP as the solution to deliver increased productivity for vehicles in NSW through its provision of extended access and mass limits, while monitoring compliance, for vehicles such as B-triples and AB-triples and vehicles operating at Higher Mass Limits (HML). Note, however, that the network of roads allowing B-triples in NSW is quite restricted.
Minister Daley’s comments were timely, given the pending 1 July 2009 deadline where heavy vehicle operators in NSW will lose HML access unless they are fully enrolled with the IAP. In New South Wales, 3,500 heavy vehicle operators have pre-enrolled for HML, with many of the pre-enrolled operators now fully enrolling in the program. IAP Service Providers have reportedly announced a significant increase in vehicle uptake over recent weeks.
Only certified IAP Service Providers can provide IAP services. The current providers are Transtech Driven and Minorplanet Asia Pacific, with additional IAP Service Providers anticipated over coming weeks.
TCA CEO Chris Koniditsiotis said: “We have welcomed the support of the minister and the ongoing vision of NSW and other state and territory governments, with the implementation of this innovative approach to enhancing heavy vehicle access in Australia. We look forward to seeing both government and industry enjoying the benefits of the IAP over the coming months and into the future.
