HGV which only goes as far a semi in size, is the max size truck marked on OSM 
wiki.
Naturally we have bigger trucks
and they have route restrictions

I've found maps relating to SA here 
http://www.transport.sa.gov.au/freight/road/vehicle_configuration/road_train.asp
and to NSW here
http://www.rta.nsw.gov.au/heavyvehicles/downloads/rav_maps/rav_nsw/rav_nsw_index.pdf
but don't copy anything off the NSW map - i've already found simple mistakes 
like the wrong end of the road marked for B-double on our road and streets 
with wrong names .
However if anyone wants to map this properly we need new tags that cover the 
legal vehicle sizes and their routes and the references above would mean we 
know what was the range to be covered.
