NHVR in Tamworth for livestock and bulk carriers conference


The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) is in Tamworth this weekend to discuss initiatives under the new national law at the Livestock and Bulk Carrier Association's (LBCA) annual conference.

The LBCA is the New South Wales state body of the Australian Livestock and Rural Transport Association (ALRTA).

This will be the first time since the commencement of the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) on 10 February 2014 that the NHVR has had the chance to meet face-to-face with frontline operators from this important sector.

LBCA President Barney Hayes said the conference provided a key opportunity for those behind the wheel to meet with those behind the national rulebook.

"I am very pleased to have the NHVR on board to meet with our members at this significant event for regional trucking," Mr Hayes said.

Attendees can expect to hear about current regulations and operations for heavy vehicle fatigue management, accreditation and access, as well as more consistent on-road enforcement—all matters that affect the day-to-day business of livestock and bulk carrier operators and drivers.
