In April 2018 the Department put in place a temporary administrative arrangement to enable much of the current fleet of Mobile Concrete Batching Plant (MCBP) vehicles to be legally operated for up to the next 10 years above the standard weight limits. This is intended to provide relevant operators with time to come into compliance with those currently-applicable limits. There is no evidence of a technical reason to prevent existing MCBP vehicle designs being operated within these weight limits.
