Road Transport Charges (Australian Capital Territory) Act 1993

Road Transport Charges (Australian Capital Territory) Regulations

Subsection 5 of the Road Transport Charges (Australian Capital Territory) Act 1993 (the Act) provides that the Governor-General may make regulations prescribing matters required or permitted to be prescribed by this Act or necessary or convenient to be prescribed for carrying out or giving effect to this Act.

The Regulations implement, in part, matters agreed to by parties of the Heavy Vehicles Agreement contained in the first schedule to the National Road Transport Commission Act 1991. This includes an agreement for the Commonwealth, with the consent of the Australian Capital Territory, to introduce legislation on the Territory's behalf, as agreed to by the Ministerial Council for Road Transport.

The Regulations contain axle load limits to enable charges to be calculated for special purpose vehicles such as agricultural equipment and cranes.

The Regulations also specify the equivalent standard axles to enable calculation of permit fees for low loaders with a loaded mass in excess of 125 tonnes.

The Regulations commence on 1 July 1995.
