The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) have released a new online tool that maps service centres, truck stops and roadhouses that remain open for heavy vehicle drivers.
NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said that the tool provided information about services and trading hours for service centres right across the country.
“Having access to food, showers, toilets and appropriate rest is critical for drivers to properly manage their fatigue,” Mr Petroccitto said.
“This new mapping tool will allow drivers to jump online and see quickly which facilities are still operational and providing these important services, allowing them to plan routes and breaks.
