VicRoads on-road compliance transitions to NHVR

All VicRoads on-road services have transitioned to the NHVR effective from Sunday 8 December, with the state joining South Australia, Tasmania and the ACT.

Operators would see distinctive uniforms and vehicles on Victorian roads from the national regulator according to NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto.

“As a national regulator, the NHVR can provide nationally consistent training and enforcement methods and resources, and undertake more complex, cross-border Chain of Responsibility investigations,” he said.

“The borderless delivery of these services is another step towards consistency that supports productivity for operators and makes our roads safer for everyone,” said Petroccitto.

As part of the transition the NHVR will also provide escort services to the over-dimensional transport industry—a service previously provided by VicRoads.

Under the new arrangements, NHVR Safety and Compliance Officers will provide escorts for vehicles carrying very large items; and conduct compliance check against permits.

The charge-out rate for these services is $227.00 per hour (including GST), with a minimum charge of two hours for weekdays and three hours for weekends and public holidays.

These rates and conditions are consistent with those previously applied by VicRoads.
