The NHVR and the South Australian Department of Infrastructure and Transport (DIT) have approved a new configuration – the BA-triple – for use on the road train network on state-controlled roads in South Australia.
BA-triples are now an eligible combination under the National Class 2 Road Train Authorisation Notice 2022 (No.3) (in South Australia only) and the South Australian Class 3 Road Friendly Suspension Mass Exemption Notice 2022 (No.2).
NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said that including the new BA-triple combination in these important access notices would deliver operational and safety benefits.
“Wherever we can, we want to introduce safer and more productive vehicles on our road networks,” Sal said.
““This is another example of the NHVR, government and industry working together to develop a safer, more productive solution to the transport task.”
