The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) would like to advise from 1 October 2018, Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras will be used to identify heavy vehicles using the Brisbane Urban Corridor as a short cut between Rocklea and Wishart without a local destination.
The Brisbane Urban Corridor (BUC) runs from Granard Road, Rocklea to Mount Gravatt- Capalaba Road, Wishart. Heavy vehicles without a local destination along this corridor should travel along the Logan Motorway and Gateway Motorway to reach their destination.
A three month trial period is proposed until end 2018 in which warning letters will be issued while the electronic process and use of new technology is monitored and any necessary adjustments are made.
At the conclusion of the trial period, infringement notices will be issued to heavy vehicle operators who break the rules.
Local residents and businesses will benefit from reduced heavy vehicle traffic volumes along this corridor.
