Heavy vehicle

The Australian government is providing $98 million under Round Six of the Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program (HVSPP) to make our roads safer.

The Nationals Duty Senator for Richmond John Williams says the government will provide up to 50 percent of the cost of successful projects to a maximum of $5 million.  

He said Tweed, Byron and Ballina Shire Councils are eligible to apply for funding for projects that will upgrade road infrastructure to improve heavy vehicle safety and freight efficiency, saving lives and reducing travel times for freight on Australia's roads.

Senator Williams said they should consult with industry and the community to ensure priorities are identified.

Under a previous round of the HVSPP the Rest Area on the Pacific Highway at Chinderah was constructed.

Applications for Round Six will close on the 30th of March next year and further details are at
