700km more for HPFVs
The Victorian Government has added another 700 kilometres of HPFV routes to the pre-approved network.
New routes include key strategic corridors such as the Maroondah/Melba Highway, Princes Hwy from Bruthen to the NSW border, and the Ringwood and Yarra Glen Bypasses.
These routes provide more simple, safe and connected journeys by reducing the regulatory burden and red tape for the movement of key commodities such as milk, grain and livestock in regional Victoria.
A pre-approved network removes the need for route assessments, simplifies the application process and shortens the timeframe to get a HPFV on the road, making it easier for farmers and rural exporters to move freight around.
