NHVR announces network map for road managers

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) has announced it will release a heavy vehicle National Network Map on 20 December.

“For the first time, the heavy vehicle industry and road managers will be able to see national road network information in one central location,” said NHVR Chief Executive Officer, Sal Petroccitto.

“The new map supports improved heavy vehicle access efficiency and decision making by bringing together the state-based heavy vehicle networks and displaying them in the National Network Map.


NHVR Chief Executive Officer, Sal Petroccitto.

“We have worked closely with our jurisdictional partners, including South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, and the Australian Capital Territory to transition their networks and achieve this important outcome.”

Mr Petroccitto said the industry will benefit from several key features of the new National Network Map, including:

  • Providing the single authoritative map to enable the heavy vehicle industry to route their journeys on approved networks.
  • Being able to view available networks across borders in one location (removing the need to go to multiple state websites).
  • The ability to search by and view available networks for more than 1,000 heavy vehicle configurations, providing better visibility and fleet management decision making.
  • Providing real time changes to road networks to ensure availability of the most accurate network access information.

Other benefits include an easily identifiable view of approved, conditional or restricted routes using a traffic light colour scheme, and map layers that can be turned on and off to identify rest areas, height restrictions and road disruptions.

The new National Network Map will be available from 20 December on the NHVR website at http://maps.nhvr.gov.au or through your NHVR Portal account.

NVHR will also host a series of webinars to provide a walkthrough of how to use the map and answer any questions. Details of the webinars are outlined below.
