Review of the Heavy Vehicle National Law

In May 2018 transport ministers agreed to bring forward an NTC-led review of the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL).

In November 2018 transport ministers approved the terms of reference. They also appointed a panel of experts with expertise in productivity and experience across the transport sector to guide the review.

Expert panel

The expert panel is chaired by Peter Harris, the recent chairman of the Productivity Commission.

The panel also comprises:

  • Sharon Middleton – Director, Whiteline Transport and President, South Australian Road Transport Association
  • Andrew Ethell – Executive Director, Amalgam Strategic and Board Member, Infrastructure Australia
  • Gary Mahon – Chief Executive Officer, Queensland Trucking Association
  • Gary Liddle – Enterprise Professor of Transport, Melbourne University and Senior Strategic Adviser, Transport, Jacobs
  • Louise Bilato – Executive Officer, NT Road Transport Association

The panel met on Wednesday, 30 January 2019 to discuss their vision for the review and to consider the NTC's approach to conducting it.
