NSW SPECTS Scheme

‘Safety, Productivity & Environment Construction Transport Scheme’

Commencing on the 1st of July 2016, enrolled vehicles will be required to have a Performance-Based Standards (PBS) approval, enrolled in the Intelligent Access Program (IAP) and equipped with On Board Mass (OBM) monitoring systems linked to the IAP, along with a number of other environmental and safety features. This will provide compliance assurance in return for unprecedented bridge access.

Transtech has approved technology immediately available to facilitate access and enrolment.

Approved Routes

The SPECTS scheme grants unprecedented access for operators working through the NSW Urban Zone.

The newly created SPECTS road-network gives complete access to operators wishing to utilise these safer PBS vehicles.

At this higher mass, general access is available on the state road network and approved local council roads with very few restrictions compared to the restrictions on the current B-Double network.
