ATA welcomes transport ministers announced by Prime Minister

The Australian Trucking Association (ATA) has welcomed the recently announced transport ministers appointed to the reshuffled front bench of new Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison earlier today.

Geoff Crouch, ATA Chair said the continued leadership of Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack in the transport portfolio was welcomed as he had displayed a commitment and understanding to the importance of the trucking industry.

He also congratulated Alan Tudge, the new Minister for Cities, Urban Infrastructure and Population and Scott Buchholz, the new Assistant Minister for Roads and Transport.

“The appointment of a former road transport operator, Mr Buchholz MP, sends a strong message about the importance of road transport,” said Crouch.

“The ATA would also like to thank the outgoing Minister for Urban Infrastructure and Cities, the Hon Paul Fletcher MP, for his commitment to engaging with industry and we wish him well in his new role.”

“The new ministry comes at an important time for heavy vehicle road reform and the introduction of an independent price regulator for setting heavy vehicle charges.”

“The Morrison-McCormack Government has some critical decisions to make about reforming charges, and the ATA looks forward to engaging with the Government on these reforms.”
