Mid North Weight of Loads Group

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 Regional
  • Bellingen Shire
  • Coffs Harbour City
  • Dungog Shire
  • Kempsey Shire
  • Liverpool Plains Shire
  • MidCoast
  • Muswellbrook Shire
  • Nambucca Shire
  • Port Macquarie/Hastings
  • Tamworth Regional
  • Upper Hunter Shire
  • Uralla Shire
  • Walcha

Although the Group issues breaches for overloading, its major focus is on providing education to 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 Mid North Weight of Loads Group website.
