Heavy vehicle charges to remain on hold

10 November 2016

Heavy vehicle operators will see no increase in registration and fuel charges in 2017-18, after transport ministers last week agreed to continue the ‘freeze revenue’ approach originally agreed by them in November 2015.

The decision by ministers attending the 4 November 2016 Transport and Infrastructure meeting means that heavy vehicle operators will experience small reductions in heavy vehicle charges while governments retain their capacity to build and maintain roads.

The approved heavy vehicle charges will apply from 1 July 2017 for 12 months.

In addition, the National Transport Commission will continue its technical work supporting Heavy Vehicle Road Reform.
