Heavy Vehicle Safety Around Ports Project


Port of Brisbane

Queensland Trucking Association Ltd





A joint initiative between the Port of Brisbane and the Queensland Trucking Association


On Friday 10th August 2018, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure Michael McCormack, announced that Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) and the Queensland Trucking Association Lt (QTA LTD) have been successful in their bid for funding under the 2018-19 Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative Fund. The Heavy Vehicle Safety Around Ports project is funded by the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR).

The Port of Brisbane is heavily reliant on the road transport network, with more than 3.1 million vehicles travelling on port roads annually, including a large proportion of heavy vehicles. This is set to increase as the freight task grows.

Both the QTA Ltd and PBPL are strongly committed to the heavy vehicle safety agenda, and this project will deliver safety-focused, tangible improvements using evidence-based findings.

The project will pilot a number of road safety measures across fatigue, speed and people to determine the most effective solutions in reducing near-misses and accidents. It is hoped the project will deliver benefits and learnings for the entire road freight industry in Australia.
