New heavy truck law starts in Feb
The Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) will start in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia on 10 February.
As reported in an earlier e-bulletin, the HVNL was initially meant to start last year.
“The NHVR recently took a very difficult decision to set aside the planned September commencement date, because we knew our IT systems needed more work,” said NHVR CEO Richard Hancock late last year.
“We have now done that work and can confidently say we will be ready on 10 February.
“We have also been working closely with our regulatory partners, state and territory road transport authorities, local government and police agencies to support them with their preparations for the new national law.”
