    When the clock strikes midnight tonight, longer and higher hay loads on trucks will be allowed on state roads to take animal feed to farmers.

    Under current regulations some larger heavy vehicles require a permit to travel on state-controlled roads.

    The maximum size of vehicle now exempt from having to apply for a permit will be 4.6 metres high and 2.83 metres wide
