We're sought feedback on the Infrastructure and Transport Ministers Meeting’s (ITMM’s) proposal to increase heavy vehicle charges by 2.5 per cent in 2021-22.
The proposal to increase heavy vehicle charges by 2.5 per cent in 2021–22 was agreed at the ITMM teleconference on 21 December 2020. Transport ministers asked the NTC to carry out a public consultation process on this proposal.
We engaged with industry and the public about the matters explored in the Heavy vehicle charges consultation report. The consultation period was from early January 2021 to mid March.
Following this consultation, all feedback was provided to ITMM and the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development for consideration.
In March 2021 transport ministers agreed to increase heavy vehicle charges by 2.5 per cent in the 2021-22 financial year. The new charges became effective on 1 July 2021.
