The IAP is a certified intelligent transport system recognised in law and developed in partnership between all Australian road agencies. The IAP has been operational in NSW since April 2008.
The IAP provides restricted access and over dimension vehicles with improved access to Australia’s road network. In return, their compliance with approved access conditions is monitored using satellite-based tracking technology. This provides Roads and Maritime Services and the community with greater assurance that the right heavy vehicles are operating on the right roads.
IAP Australia-wide can provide more information on the IAP.
How does IAP work?
An in-vehicle unit needs to be installed by a certified IAP Service Provider.
The unit will automatically record the date, time, and position of any heavy vehicle that is non-compliant with the access conditions on the IAP permit. Information about any non-compliant travel may form the basis of an investigation by Roads and Maritime Services. The IAP is mandatory for access and provides enhanced route access for the following vehicles operating in NSW:
