Heavy Vehicle Drivers Invited to Test New Road Safety Initiative

30 Jun 2017 1:12 PM | Administration (Administrator)

Heavy Vehicle Rest Area (HVRA) Mobile Phone App:  Be Part of the Customer Experience

The objective of the HVRA app is to enable immediate access of rest area information that may assist to improve the health and wellbeing of heavy vehicle drivers. This may contribute to reducing fatigued-related crashes. 

The features of the HVRA app may include:
  • identifying all types of rest areas across the state road network,
  • description of each rest area (amenities, utilities, parking bays and so on), and
  • a check-in feature to know how many parking bays are available at a rest area (which could assist dangerous goods vehicles).
The Department of Transport & Main Roads are seeking input from heavy vehicle drivers who are required to have a fatigue management plan, to take part in helping to develop the HVRA app.
 
Once you have the concept model of the HVRA app on your phone you are able to start testing the app.
 
YOUR FEEDBACK will assist in making the HVRA app:
  • work better for you and other drivers,
  • have the right information at your fingertips, and
  • understand how you and other drivers make decisions about your obligated rest stops.
Drivers are encouraged to attend drop-in sessions which are available between 1pm - 4pm to provide more detailed feedback on:
  • Tuesday 11 July 2017 
  • Wednesday 26 July 2017
  • Tuesday 8 August 2017

Venue: TMR's Customer Experience Lab at 41 George Street (Mineral House) Brisbane.
 
If you would like to attend one or more of the drop-in sessions please RSVP via email at HVRestAreas@tmr.qld.gov.au or by telephone on 3066 2197.
