Improving heavy vehicle rest stops

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.

Tell us what you think

We are now seeking heavy vehicle drivers' feedback to inform network priorities. Heavy vehicle drivers and operators are invited to share their perspective to ensure the 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 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.

You can provide your feedback via our survey or interactive map. Your feedback will be used to identify priority areas, inform future improvements to the quality and quantity of heavy vehicle rest areas.

You can provide your feedback until 28 February 2023.
