Better Access

May 6, 2022

Start: 11:20 am

End: 12:20 pm

The heavy vehicle road access approval system is broken. Trucking operators are being forced to lodge multiple applications for freight routes which have been repeatedly assessed as suitable. The system is slow, manual and labour-intensive. The productivity outcomes from better access have been talked about for a decade – but with limited gains actually being delivered. In this session, delegates will have the opportunity to hear about past successful access reforms in Tasmania and South Australia and have your say on what needs fixing.
