Update on Road Traffic and Transport Legislation.  The presentation will address the latest developments on the National Road Traffic Act and Regulations, AARTO and the National Land Transport Act.

The High Cube Container Legislation: The Government Perspective. A moratorium is currently in place exempting compliance with regulation 224(b) of the NRTA until 1 January 2020. The regulation states that a maximum height of 4.3 m is allowed for all vehicles except double-deck buses. Many high cube containers carried on goods vehicles exceed this height and has been exempted from 2011 until 1 January 2019. A further moratorium was published by DOT that allows for the movement of these containers at a height higher than 4.3 metres (4.6) until the end of 2019. Mr. Makgatho will present the government’s view on the issue.


Director of South African Association of Freight Forwards

The High Cube Container Legislation: An Industry Perspective. As a member of the task team appointed by the Minister, Mr Walwyn will present the industry’s view on the way forward.


The draft National Road Traffic Law Enforcement Code – Section 32 of the RTMC Act requires the RTMC to develop a law enforcement code regulating road traffic enforcement. The presentation addresses the latest draft of the NRTLEC.
