Discussion

The requirements for Road Train approvals are

  • Traffic volumes
  • 6m sealed width
  • Compliance with turning templates and swept path widths
  • Overtaking opportunities
  • Structural requirements for bridges, and min width of 7.4m
  • Community acceptance
  • Referral to the Traffic Committee

The applications relate to the anticipated heavy rice harvest and a requirement for road transport to Deniliquin. The routes have been inspected and trialed through Moulamein and apart from one narrow culvert (7.0m) there are no impediments. Approval is recommended with no conditions.

Traffic Committee Comments

The Traffic Committee have considered the routes and deemed them satisfactory for the intended use.
