High Productivity Motor Vehicles

In mid-2010 the government passed legislation to allow bigger trucks, known as high productivity motor vehicles (HPMV), to carry heavier loads on our roads. 

To operate a HPMV you require a special permit and you are restricted to roads approved as suitable for these vehicles. 

For more information about high productivity motor vehicles go to NZTA website.   

Here are the maps of the approved routes for HPMV's in Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty.
