Road Train Farm Gate Access Scheme

Road Infrastructure Management (RIM)
Provides exemptions for eligible heavy vehicles to access council roads within approved areas without Permit.

Farm Gate Access introduces conditional area-wide access for Higher Productivity Vehicles (HPV) transporting grain and livestock on council roads in participating council areas. The initiative includes the Farm Gate Network provision added to the existing NSW Livestock Loading Scheme (LLS) and the NSW Grain Harvest Management Scheme (GHMS) and a series of tools and services to support NSW council's making heavy vehicle access decisions.
