VDAM Rule 2016

The NZ Transport Agency has created a new page on their website where members can find the revised rule and supporting information – visit nzta.govt.nz/vdamrule2016.

It has been made available now so the sector can familiarise itself with the changes in the rule and how they may affect operations and vehicle selections, prior to implementation. The same page also provides questions and answers relating to the new rule.

Available on the webpage are summary guides which can be downloaded or printed. There are three versions that focus on different aspects of the rule for operators:

• Overview of changes – including general access and dimensions
• What’s changed for over-dimension vehicles and loads
• Introducing specialist vehicles.

If members have any questions, please contact the VDAM project team at vdam2016@nzta.govt.nz
