ATA Calls for Rest Stop Standards to be Reinforced

The Australian Trucking Association (ATA) joined the rest of the industry in calling for rest stop standards to be reinforced.

The ATA welcomed Austroads guidelines aimed at addressing a number of key driver concerns. The association represents 50,000 businesses and 211,500 people. It thanked Austroads for “listening to concerns and recommendations raised in consultations during the guideline drafting process”.

The research report, Guidelines for the Provision of Heavy Vehicle Rest Area (HVRA) Facilities, is a response to calls for updated standards. It is aimed at assisting in the planning, design and prioritisation of truck rest areas.

All jurisdictions now have a responsibility to ensure the guidelines are enforced and the funds allocated by the Australian government are spent accordingly.
