The RMS has announced it’s trialling heavy vehicle lane restrictions on the M1 for a period of twelve months.
Trucks and buses with a gross vehicle mass of more than 4-and-a-half tonnes will only be able to travel along the left two lanes from Wahroonga to Kariong.
“We’ve got over 75,000 cars using the M1 between the Central Coast and Sydney every day and this will vastly improve safety keeping trucks from moving in and out of the right-hand most lane.”
Strict penalties will be in place for those caught breaking the rules from November 1.
