National truck laws

National truck laws

The national truck laws passed by the Queensland Parliament are a huge step toward improving safety and reducing red tape for the trucking industry, the chairman of the Australian Trucking Association David Simon said.

The laws passed will formally establish the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator. Before the national laws come into full effect, the Queensland Parliament will need to pass a second, amending bill and the other states and territories in the national system will need to pass their own legislation.

Mr Simon said he had personally congratulated the Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Anthony Albanese.
