Funding boost for heavy vehicle safety projects

The Government is taking further action to keep motorists safe on our roads with an investment of almost $5.5 million in 28 road safety projects.

the Government is backing new education, research, training and technology initiatives that aim to deliver improved safety outcomes for the heavy vehicle industry and wider community.


The initiatives include education programs for younger drivers on how to share the road with heavy vehicles and field-testing safety chain solutions to prevent heavy vehicle trailer separation incidents.

The program brings the community, government and industry together to deliver on a shared goal of safer drivers, safer vehicles and safer road use for all Australians.
