That is correct, 2.55m maximum trailer width, 305mm maximum overhang each side and 2.9m maximum width overall. This can be got around by submitting an abnormal load notification every time you move, but its a bit of a pain.
Remember if you go abroad though, 2.55m is the maximum overall width in most European countries. Any wider and you will need special permits, signage, lighting, etc. Above 3m and you will need an escort!
