The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) has welcomed the appointment of Minister Paul Toole and Minister Andrew Constance to key NSW roads and transport portfolios.
NHVR Chair Duncan Gay said the Regulator looked forward to continuing to work closely with the re-elected Berejiklian Government on a wide range of heavy vehicle reforms.
“The NHVR has had a constructive working relationship with Roads and Maritime Services and I’m committed to continuing this relationship under the new teams,” Mr Gay said.
“On behalf of the board and staff of the NHVR I look forward to working with Paul and Andrew to deliver heavy vehicle safety and productivity programs across the state and the longer term goal to transition NSW heavy vehicle services.
“With a number of large construction projects and significant freight movement within and passing through, NSW is a crucial part of our national network.”
Mr Toole was appointed Transport and Regional Roads Minister and Mr Constance appointed Transport and Roads Minister.
Mr Gay also thanked former Roads Minister Melinda Pavey who was appointed as Water, Property and Housing Minister.
“I would particularly like to acknowledge the hard work and close co-operation with Melinda and her strong support for ongoing heavy vehicle reform and wish her well in her new portfolio.”
