A Flood Recovery Road Access Group (FRRAG) has been established by Transport and Main Roads and Queensland Police to manage emergency and disaster heavy vehicle access under the provision of the Heavy Vehicle National Law.
A dedicated hotline and email address is operating to provide help, information and emergency access to freight consignors and heavy vehicle transport operators travelling in the affected areas.
The FRRAG hotline number is 1300 105 647 or alternatively email firstname.lastname@example.org
The hotline enables operators to access specific information on alternative routes they can use. They can apply for heavy vehicle emergency permits that cannot be provided through normal processes in affected areas, or when special access is required in cases of emergency or great need.
TMR and QPS advise operators to monitor changing road conditions in the Conditions of Operation Database at https://www.service.transport.qld.gov.au/ExcessMassExternal/PublicConditionReport.jsp and the QLD Traffic website at https://qldtraffic.qld.gov.au/
