Mile­stone for $13M es­tate

Big Rigs - - NEWS -

CON­STRUC­TION of the $13.3 mil­lion Road Train As­sem­bly Area is near­ing com­ple­tion at the new Truck Cen­tral Es­tate in Wishart.

The as­sem­bly area is a key com­po­nent of the $52 mil­lion Truck Cen­tral de­vel­op­ment which is un­der con­struc­tion at the cor­ner of Tiger Bren­nan Drive and Wishart Rd.

NT Road Trans­port As­so­ci­a­tion ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Louise Bi­lato said the Road Train As­sem­bly Area would be an “ex­tremely valu­able as­set im­prov­ing both safety and pro­duc­tiv­ity for the road trans­port in­dus­try”.

The As­sem­bly Area will pro­vide 55 heavy trans­port park­ing bays, in­clud­ing 17 bays for triple road trains and a fur­ther 11 wider bays for the re­con­fig­u­ra­tion and as­sem­bly of trail­ers.

The In­spec­tion Fa­cil­ity has been de­signed to ac­com­mo­date fully con­fig­ured 53.5m triple road trains at the same time.

This al­lows truck­ers to ef­fi­ciently meet their in­spec­tion compliance re­quire­ments with­out los­ing time dis­con­nect­ing and re­con­nect­ing trail­ers.

Truck Cen­tral is sched­uled to open for busi­ness this De­cem­ber.
