Consultation at Shoalhaven for industry and local government

An industry forum hosted by Shoalhaven City Council in August provided an opportunity for the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator, industry, operators and councils to come together and share experiences and identify key issues relating to Heavy Vehicle Access.

Attendees heard from a range of industry representatives who provided an overview on topics such as ‘NSW Government perspective - Optimising the Network’, ‘Council Peer Practices - Understanding and responding to industry issues’ and an update on the ‘NHVR Portal - Making heavy vehicle access simpler for industry and road managers’.

Council’s Economic Development Manager, Greg Pullen, organised the event and was pleased with the outcomes.

“The day provided another great opportunity to hear from a range of speakers and get great feedback on industry concerns and issues.

“In particular we had a great chance during the workshops to discuss industry network issues, optimising the network to reduce red tape for industry and council and how best to develop internal systems and assessment procedures.

“The main objective of the day was to bring together the various players that can deliver productivity gains to industry. Our plan to achieve this, was embraced by all attendees and already steps are underway to bring the freight operators and the road asset owners together to discuss issues of mutual benefit.

“I’m looking forward to the next get together to see how far we’ve come,” he added.

Council’s Economic Development Office organised an outdoor display of vehicles and interviews with manufacturers and operators of the vehicles during the lunch break, providing an opportunity to inform attendees of their superior safety and efficiency features.
