The purpose of this work was to present the Transport and Infrastructure Council with options for heavy vehicle charges to apply from 1 July 2020.

Next steps

The Heavy vehicle charges consultation report was open for pubic consultation until Friday 28 February 2020.

Governments are now implementing heavy vehicle charges for 2020–21 which will remain at 2019–20 levels.

Background

At its meeting on 22 November 2019, the Transport and Infrastructure Council identified a preference for charges to rise by 2.5 per cent in 202021 and 2.5 per cent in 202122.

The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, the Hon Michael McCormack MP, directed the NTC to undertake public consultation on these proposed increases to heavy vehicle charges.

Governments have decided to freeze heavy vehicle charges for 2020–21 at 2019–20 levels.
