Heavy Vehicle Road Reform
The Australian Government is working with state, territory and local governments, as well as industry and community stakeholders, to progress Heavy Vehicle Road Reform. This work is being overseen by the Transport and Infrastructure Council.
Possible reform measures being contemplated under Heavy Vehicle Road Reform can be categorised as either “demand side” reforms (changes aimed at influencing consumption of road services) or “supply side” reforms (changes to the way in which road services are provided).
