8 Slide 8 2. IMPROVING FREIGHT TASK PRODUCTIVITY 2010 Change to VDAM Rule (vehicle mass and dimension) Provision for HPMV (High Productivity Motor Vehicle) - General access limited to 44 tonnes GVM (gross vehicle mass) (governed by weakest part of network)

9 Slide 9 2. IMPROVING FREIGHT TASK PRODUCTIVITY (Cont’d) HPMV provides permitted access to identified routes for specified vehicle combinations with a GVM up to 62 tonnes Permitting of vehicles and routes inherently prescriptive, administratively costly and clumsy

10 Slide IMPROVING FREIGHT TASK PRODUCTIVITY (Cont’d) 2013 introduction of 50 Max - Near general access for 50 tonnes GVM on 9 axles and minimum 20 metres (between 1 st and last axle) % payload gain Bigger and Better Newer, Fewer and Safer

11 Slide 11 Limited to new vehicle types – Pro forma 23m truck & trailer 23m 44T 23m 50T Existing vehicle 50MAX Pro forma vehicle

12 Slide 12 Limited to new vehicle types – Pro forma 23m B-Train 12

13 Slide 13

14 Slide 14 HPMV Route investment % of the total freight task is carried on 95% of network. 50MAX vehicles provides an economically viable solution without upgrading local roads The strategic freight network (HPMV investment routes) opens up 4500 km of most productive corridors to 62T vehicles. This is 5% of total road network carrying 50% of freight

15 Slide 15 50MAX HPMV replicates Class 1 load curve beyond 44 tonnes for wheelbases >16m Think of it as an extension of Class 1 vehicles Payload increased by 5T

16 Slide IMPROVING FREIGHT TASK PRODUCTIVITY (Cont’d) Integrity of HPMV policy dependent upon high level of compliance Must protect asset and keep within an affordable rate of consumption Maintain commercial neutrality and ensure non-compliant are not rewarded - patterned and persistent non compliance introduces unfair competition and drives down freight rates. The compliant subsidise the non-compliant

17 Slide IMPROVING FREIGHT TASK PRODUCTIVITY (Cont’d) Are CVIU adequately resourced and trained? New technology - Number plate recognition - Vehicle weight scanning - GPS
