Certainly are,as per the article,   n any city area, an over-dimension vehicle/trailer must not travel: Between 7am-9am or 4pm-6pm, Monday to Friday
Between 10am-1pm or 4pm-7pm on Saturday or Sunday. Or at any times of unusually high traffic volumes.

Cost of importing,even though personnel item,would of thought uneconomical to bring + tow vehicle cost of purchase in nz.  Bio security costs?
