Heavy vehicle restrictions now in place
Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) has been aware, from discussions with residents and businesses in and around MacArthur Avenue, that the parking of trucks and heavy vehicles and associated trailers during the day and overnight is having a detrimental impact on the quality of the local environment.
Following the end of Port of Brisbane activities on MacArthur Avenue in 2021, EDQ has been working with Brisbane City Council and the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) to manage the impacts of heavy vehicles in this area. The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator is the statutory authority administering the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL).
We are pleased to announce that the NHVR has approved an application to restrict heavy vehicles from parking, marshalling, or queueing anywhere along MacArthur Avenue and Bincote Street within Northshore.
Effective immediately, heavy vehicles will now only be allowed to travel along these roads.
Enforcement of these restrictions will be the responsibility of Brisbane City Council.
EDQ hopes these measures will improve the user experience for residents, occupiers, and visitors alike as we continue to transform Northshore into a sustainable sub-tropical lifestyle precinct.
