Learn about heavy vehicle operation at Euroa forum
HEAVY vehicle operators in the Strathbogie Shire and surrounding region are invited to attend a forum to learn more about the new National Heavy Vehicle Regulations.
There will be two sessions held both on Thursday, December 6, with one at Nagambie Rowing Club from 8.30-10am and one at Euroa Conference Centre (Memorial Oval) from 11.30am-1pm.
Between March 2017 and March 2018, 184 people died from 163 fatal crashes involving heavy trucks and 32 people died from 27 fatal crashes involving buses.
Roadsafe Goulburn Valley is partnering with Strathbogie Shire Council, VicRoads, Regional Roads Victoria, Driver Education Centre of Australia (DECA), the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator and Victoria Police to deliver the forum which will address issues within today’s transport industry, with particular reference to the new National Heavy Vehicle Regulations.
Strathbogie Shire mayor Amanda McClaren said council encourages truck, bus and heavy machinery companies and operators to come along.
“This is a great opportunity to address heavy vehicle safety and ensure all of our local operators understand the new regulations and have the opportunity to ask questions,” Cr McClaren said.
“Attendees will hear from a number of different speakers, including representatives from Victoria Police, Highway Patrol and VicRoads.”
Spaces are limited, so please register for the forum by emailing [email protected] strathbogie.vic.gov.au with confirmation of attendance at one of the sessions.
Light refreshments will be provided at both sessions.
