NHVR welcomes the reappointment of Minister McCormack
The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) has welcomed the re-appointment of Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack as Federal Transport, Infrastructure and Regional Development Minister.
NHVR Chair Duncan Gay said he looked forward to continuing to work with Mr McCormack to deliver on-going heavy vehicle safety and productivity reforms across Australia.
“I congratulate Michael and Assistant Minister for Road Safety and Freight Transport Scott Buchholz on behalf of the NHVR staff and Board, and look forward to working with them to deliver an on-going reform agenda for heavy vehicle safety and productivity,” Mr Gay said.
“Michael has taken a keen role in understanding the challenges facing heavy vehicle operators and has been a strong advocate for progressing initiatives which deliver greater productivity and uniform laws and regulations across state borders.
“The returned Coalition government has made announcements in relation to boosting the ongoing Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative program, as well as additional funding for a local government infrastructure assessment program.
“I look forward to continuing the NHVR’s close working relationship with Federal government and Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities in the years ahead.”
Mr McCormack has been the Federal Minister responsible for the NHVR since February 2018.
