Current Road Safety (Vehicle) Regulations, particulaly those limiting rear overhang and prohibiting towing vehicles such as rollers, could impact significantly on rural road maintenance costs.  VicRoads is currently preparing a gazette notice amending the regulations applying to graders to address this issue.

IPWEAvic President David Sutcliffe wrote to the Minister for Roads late last year to outline this problem and seek its correction.  A copy of the ministers reply is available here

IPWEAvic in conjunction with MWOA are working to solve this issue with MWOA undertaking a survey of graders used in municipalities ready for submission to VicRoads.
