NHVR thanks outgoing Department of Infrastructure secretary


The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator has thanked outgoing Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development Secretary Mike Mrdak for his contribution to the Australian heavy vehicle industry.

NHVR Chair Bruce Baird said Mike’s leadership, particularly during the formative years of the Regulator, had provided the foundations for significant progress for heavy vehicle reform and safety.

“Mike has been a champion of national harmonisation, consistent laws and heavy vehicle reform both in Canberra and right across Australia,” Mr Baird said.

“He has been willing to engage on a range of issues and I’ve welcomed his counsel many times. I wish him all the best in his new role.”

Mr Baird said the NHVR looked forward to working with the incoming Department Secretary Dr Steven Kennedy to continue the safety and productivity programs being delivered across the heavy vehicle industry.
