Hill Descent Monitoring Schemes (for Transport for NSW)

Hill Descent Monitoring – Mount Ousley Scheme

The Hill Descent Monitoring – Mount Ousley Scheme is a scheme associated with the Telematics Monitoring Application (TMA) of the National Telematics Framework. TMA is a Level 2 Assurance application.

The scheme is administered by Transport for NSW (TfNSW) to monitor:

  • the estimated speed of A-Double combinations (prime mover, semi-trailer towing a 5 or 6 axle dog trailer) operating under permit on part of the TfNSW road network, namely Mount Ousley (noting the permit to operate will be related to this section of road only, and any other permits that these vehicles operate under are not monitored by this scheme)
  • conformance with the 40 km/h speed limit when descending Mount Ousley.

To participate in the scheme, transport operators must conform with the requirements specified within the access approval (e.g. a Notice or permit). Enrolment in TMA is one of these requirements.

Find out more details on the scheme by downloading a copy of the Hill Descent Monitoring Schemes document.

To offer services for this scheme, an application service provider (ASP) must be certified by TCA to offer TMA services. TCA must also approve telematics devices used in the scheme.

TCA will analyse data received through the TMA application, and reports will be made available via the Telematics Analytics Platform (TAP).
