Australia has a growing freight task and limited funds for upgrading infrastructure. Sharing examples of best practice for productive vehicles and supporting improved access decisions may help raise awareness and capabilities of road managers, which will help support increased use of high productivity vehicles with all of the related benefits.
We talked to our stakeholders to identify both examples of good practice, as well as where access decisions have resulted in poor community and/or industry outcomes.
We used the information we collect to develop a set of case studies to help:
- inform road managers about the benefits of improved access for higher productivity vehicles when the conditions are appropriate
- raise the general capability of less experienced road managers.
We have sent these case studies to the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator, to assist with their continuing work with road managers.
