Mid North Weight of Loads Group

Protect and Prolong the Life of our Roads!

The Mid North Weight of Loads Group works in co-operation with the New South Wales Roads and Traffic Authority to protect and prolong the life of our roads by reducing the incidence of overloaded vehicles.

The Group comprises the New South Wales Local Government Councils of:

Armidale/Dumaresq Kempsey Shire
Bellingen Shire Liverpool Plains Shire
Coffs Harbour City Port Macquarie/Hastings
Dungog Shire Tamworth Regional
Gloucester Shire Upper Hunter Shire
Great Lakes Uralla Shire
Greater Taree City Walcha Shire
Guyra Shire  

Although the Group issues breaches for overloading, its major focus is on education which will assist truck operators in making sure their loads are legal and are not causing damage to roads.

As part of the Group's education program, inspectors offer truck weighing on request and give advice on proper loading.

Further information regarding fines, weighing procedures, limits and an information brochure can be found on the groups website Mid North Weight of Loads Group.
