NHVR partners with Queensland Police to launch road safety campaign

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) and Queensland Police Service (QPS) have joined hands to launch the ‘Sharing our Roads with Oversize Loads’ campaign. The plan is to encourage drivers to share the road with heavy vehicles carrying oversize loads this Queensland Road Safety Week.

The campaign features a series of videos to show road users how to stay safe when driving around oversized loads.

“The Sharing our Roads with Oversize Loads campaign is funded by the Australian Government through the NHVR’s Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative,” Federal Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government Catherine King said.

“The NHVR, police authorities, state and local government road managers and heavy vehicle operators each have a role to play in selecting the routes and conditions oversize loads must meet to transport important cargo, such as critical infrastructure, on Australia’s roads,” she said.

Queensland Road Safety Week runs from Monday, August 22 – Friday, August 26.
