Improved truck parking and rest stops in and around Deniliquin NSW 2710

This petition had 86 supporters

Currently in the Deniliquin LGA there is little to no appropriate heavy vehicle parking and/ or rest stops for Truck drivers travelling through our area. The Cobb and Riverina Highways meet in Deniliquin and carry a large portion of interstate vehicle movements heading to both northern and southern states of Australia. There is one designated truck parking area located on Hardinge Street, Deniliquin (Cobb highway) with only a 1 hour limit. Better parking and driver facilities will provide areas to allow compliance with regulated rest breaks, prevent parking in residential areas, provide safe and secure long term parking of up to 24 hours. Many local residents and business people are becoming increasingly frustrated with the heavy vehicles parking where they can to access essential services like meals and amenities, unfortunately until better, more accessible parking is provided this will cont. Safer roads are huge on any agenda but without the appropriate facilities we are neglecting to see the bigger picture. Together we can and we will pursue local and state governments to provide better, improved, even new facilities to support the heavy vehicle industry in our area for all to use and benefit from.
