The scheme is made available by Transport and Main Roads (TMR) Queensland to enable access of Class 3 20m Long 3-Axle Truck and 4-Axle Dog Trailers on approved routes of the Queensland road network.
To participate in the scheme, transport operators must conform with the requirements specified within the National Class 3 20m Long 3-axle Truck and 4-axle Dog Trailer Mass and Dimension Exemption Notice. Enrolment in TMA is one of these requirements.
An applicable NHVR permit also provides conditions of travel for these vehicles that are required to be monitored on stated areas and routes in Queensland. The applicable permit may require mass and vehicle configuration to be monitored using a Category B or C OBM system (i.e. a ‘Smart OBM system’).
TCA must approve telematics devices used in the scheme. The telematics device used in this scheme will generate position records and report them to TCA.
If the applicable permit requires mass and vehicle configuration to be monitored, TCA must also approve Smart OBM systems used in the scheme. The Smart OBM system will generate mass and vehicle configuration records and report them to TCA.
Transport operators can enrol vehicles in the scheme by contacting a certified Application Service Provider (ASP). If the applicable permit requires mass and vehicle configuration to be monitored, the ASP must also be certified to provide services for TMA with the Smart OBM feature.
Unless required by law, TCA will destroy the telematics data it has received relating to the transport operator’s nominated vehicle(s) 12 months from its receipt of the data.
TCA will analyse data received through the TMA application, and reports will be made available via the Telematics Analytics Platform (TAP).
