The Safety, Productivity and Environment Construction Transport Scheme (SPECTS) is a scheme administered by Transport for NSW.
The purpose of the scheme is to improve the safety, environmental performance and productivity of heavy vehicles used within the construction industry in the Greater Sydney Metropolitan Area. Vehicles participating in the scheme are permitted to travel on all state roads and approved local roads in the NSW Urban Zone excluding bridges signposted with load limits.
The scheme is associated with the Road Infrastructure Management (RIM) application, which is administered through TCA as part of the National Telematics Framework. RIM is a Level 1 Assurance application.
To offer services for this scheme, an application service provider must be registered by TCA to offer RIM services. A telematics device or similar can be used in the scheme.

Note: The trial started in 2019 and has been extended to 1 October 2020, due to COVID-19 restrictions.
TCA will process data received through the RIM application, and reports will be made available via the Telematics Analytics Platform (TAP).
