The purpose of this work was to present the Transport and Infrastructure Council (now the Infrastructure and Transport Ministers' Meetings) with options for heavy vehicle charges to apply from 1 July 2020.
The Heavy vehicle charges consultation report was open for public consultation until Friday 28 February 2020.
Governments are now implementing heavy vehicle charges for 2020–21 which will remain at 2019–20 levels.
Heavy vehicle charges consultation
At its meeting on 22 November 2019, the Transport and Infrastructure Council identified a preference for charges to rise by 2.5 per cent in 2020–21 and 2.5 per cent in 2021–22.
The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, the Hon Michael McCormack MP, directed the NTC to undertake public consultation on these proposed increases to heavy vehicle charges.
Governments have decided to freeze heavy vehicle charges for 2020–21 at 2019–20 levels.
