Interim OBM Solution

The Interim OBM Solution uses OBM systems linked to the IAP, and enables road managers to manage the compliance of both route and mass conditions of heavy vehicles operating under specific conditions of access.

This means:

  • The Interim OBM Solution was established as a short-term measure until Intelligent Mass functionality was made available through the National Telematics Framework.
  • The Interim OBM Solution is a transitional arrangement used only in NSW and QLD.
  • The use of the Interim OBM will be transitioned over time to Intelligent Mass.
  • Intelligent Mass is scheduled to become operational and available from the end of 2020 (subject to the availability of Smart OBM Systems).

How it can be used

The Interim OBM Solution may be used for productivity reforms that require knowing the location and mass of vehicles. This helps to manage access involving vulnerable structures, such as bridges.
