PBS Vehicle Monitoring Scheme
Required to obtain access under Notice or via Permit for PBS Level 2 vehicle combinations exceeding 26m in length.
The Performance-Based Standards (PBS) Vehicle Monitoring Scheme is administered by the Department of State Growth (DSG), Tasmania, to:
- permit access of PBS Level 2 vehicle combinations exceeding 26 m in length (e.g. 30-metre A-Doubles, 30-metre B-Doubles) or 68.5-tonne gross mass to the Tasmanian road network
- monitor the operation of certain PBS Level 2 vehicle combinations on an approved road network, including speed at no greater than 90 km/h
- monitor whether the vehicles which exceed 68.5 tonne gross mass cross certain bridges at nominated weights.
To participate in the scheme, transport operators must conform with the requirements specified within the instrument of access approval (e.g. a Notice or permit). Enrolment in TMA is one of those requirements.
Requires Category B or C type-approved OBM systems fitted to the combination.
