QLD On-Road Enforcement Set To Transition to NHVR

Heavy vehicle on-roads enforcement activity will transition from the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) to the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) on April 20, 2024.

This follows the passing of enabling legislation in the Queensland Parliament on February 14.

NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto says the transition of services in Queensland is a significant milestone for the NHVR as it finalises its 10-year journey to become a national regulator.

From April 20, more than 100 employees from TMR, and an additional 60 new starters, will join the NHVR to deliver on-road compliance, investigations, heavy vehicle monitoring, prosecutions and programmed heavy vehicle inspections aligning its compliance approach and bringing in safer and more consistent regulation of heavy vehicle movements across Australia.

To help drive the on-road compliance and national consistency across its heavy vehicle activities, NHVR has appointed TMR’s Kelli Ready to the newly created position of Director Northern Region. She brings vast heavy vehicle industry experience including leading and delivering regulatory compliance programs.

“It is with great enthusiasm that I step into this role. I look forward to collaborating with industry to safely enhance efficiency and drive a consistent, national approach to heavy vehicle regulation,” Ready says.

On transition, the Northern Region will join Central and Southern Regions in leading on-road operational service delivery.

“I look forward to working with our industry and government partners as we move into a phase of harmonisation to embed national consistency within the heavy vehicle sector across regulatory processes, compliance and enforcement standards,” Petroccitto says.
