The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways in India has proposed to allow rigid vehicles as well as trailers to have a maximum of three decks to transport two-wheelers, with the load body not projecting over the driver’s cabin.

According to a statement, this will enhance the carriage capacity of two wheelers by 40-50 percent.

The proposal has been made after examining the issue of static stability tests and the dynamic stability of the three deck vehicles.

Comments/suggestions have been invited from concerned stakeholders within a period of thirty days.
