Transport for NSW is increasing the number and improving the quality of heavy vehicle rest stops across the state road network
The Heavy Vehicle Rest Stop Improvement Program aims to plan and prepare for new heavy vehicle rest stop opportunities and potential improvements to existing rest stops.
The program includes a comprehensive audit of the state road network and the existing and potential provision of heavy vehicle rest stops against the Austroads Guidelines.
Transport for NSW is delivering major highway upgrades across NSW. These projects will deliver improved rest stops as part of the upgrades.
Between November 2022 and March 2023 Transport for NSW engaged the road freight industry to inform its work in improving the number and quality of heavy vehicle rest stops in NSW. Heavy vehicle drivers and operators were invited to share their perspective to ensure our work meets the current and future needs of heavy vehicle drivers and the growing freight task by identifying any gaps in the network.
In seeking feedback, we asked industry to prioritise feedback on the Barton Highway, Princes Highway and Great Western Highway in the first instance and then consider the broader state road network.
Feedback will be used to identify priority areas, inform future improvements to the quality and quantity of heavy vehicle rest areas.

In seeking feedback, we would like industry to prioritise feedback on the Barton Highway, Princes Highway and Great Western Highway in the first instance and then consider the broader state road network.
