The Liberal-National government is supporting the transport industry with record investment in road infrastructure. The government is also working through the Transport and Infrastructure Council of COAG on developing a new system for heavy-vehicle charging in Australia. The government is also working with state and territory governments and the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator to make it easier for businesses to deliver freight in a safe manner and for workers in the industry to get home safely. This work is complemented by the new Office of Road Safety and the Joint Select Committee on Road Safety as well.
