RTA offers new deal to push up IAP enrolments

New South Wales Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) will offer higher mass limits (HML) route confirmation to those transport operators

New South Wales Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) will offer higher mass limits (HML) route confirmation to those transport operators considering enrolling in the Intelligence Access Program (IAP).

Through this process, operators will be able to confirm if a desired HML route is available before they engage the services of an IAP service provider. The RTA will provide this service to non-enrolled and pre-enrolled operators.

The announcement comes as the pre-enrolment date draws to a close. Transport operators have until May 31 to pre-enrol vehicles and gain the benefits of a transition period as well as request additional access on other roads for vehicles already pre-enrolled.

By pre-enrolling, transport operators will have until June 30 2009 to decide whether to fully enrol in the IAP. During that time, operators will be able to retain their current, individual pre-enrolment access entitlements.

The RTA says the transition period will allow operators to make informed decisions about enrolling in the IAP, engage a certified IAP service provider – of which only one, SigTec, has been announced – and manage the logistics of having the relevant equipment installed in vehicles.
