As you may be aware, Heavy Vehicle Services is amending its Harvest Mass Management Scheme for 2016 / 17 to allow improved 'first mile' access to paddocks for Restricted Access Vehicles.  The measures are designed to assist operators in safely moving increased quantities of grain from paddock to bin, in anticipation of a bumper harvest.
