Don’t get heavy about it

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Front Page -

The Aus­tralian Trans­port As­so­ci­a­tion has urged all par­ties to not get bogged down in de­cid­ing where the pro­posed na­tional heavy-ve­hi­cle reg­u­la­tor will be based. NSW, Vic­to­ria and Queens­land have ex­pressed in­ter­est, but trans­port min­is­ters have re­ferred the de­ci­sion to COAG. ‘‘The Fed­eral In­fra­struc­ture Min­is­ter, An­thony Al­banese, showed determination and vi­sion in push­ing the con­cept of the na­tional heavy ve­hi­cle reg­u­la­tor and reg­u­la­tions,’’ ATA boss Trevor Mar­tyn says. ‘‘Now COAG needs to show the same level of vi­sion, and make a fast de­ci­sion about the reg­u­la­tor’s host state.’’
