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.
