Hill Descent Monitoring Schemes

Monday, May 4, 2020 - 14:00

This document describes Hill Descent Monitoring (HDM) schemes associated with the Telematics Monitoring Application (TMA). An HDM scheme is administered by an appropriate road authority or regulator (‘Authority’).

Hill Descent Monitoring schemes provide Authorities with a way to manage sections of road with hazardous grades and road alignments. Using HDM schemes, Authorities can use type-approved telematics devices to provide data on vehicle compliance with restrictions placed on access to specific hills.

An HDM scheme is a specific use of the TMA application linked to delivering a policy objective. To participate in an HDM scheme, an Operator (e.g. a transport operator) must conform with the requirements specified within a permit or Notice. Enrolment in the TMA application, which is administered by TCA as part of the National Telematics Framework (NTF), is one of these requirements.  The report is available online at https://tca.gov.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Schemes-HDMTMA-Version2.1.pdf
