ADELONG TRUCK CURFEW MEETING

NIGHT CURFEW ON VISY TRUCK MOVEMENTS THROUGH ADELONG
BETWEEN 10.00pm AND 7.00 am


Lobbing efforts to overturn a night-time heavy vehicle curfew through Adelong will be ramped up next week when a public meeting is held at the Adelong S and C Club.

Organised by the Australian Long Distance Owner and Drivers Association, the meeting will also discuss concerns about the Gocup Road.

Representives from the RTA, Visy and Tumut Shire Council, as well as the Minister for Transport, have been invited to attend.

The truck curfew, which bans trucks picking up or dropping off product at Visy, runs from 10.pm to 7. am.

Adelong truck driver Bunny Brown said he is confident the curfew will be overturned.

The meeting will be held December 9th (wednesday) at 7.30pm

  1. I quote letter from General manager
    R K Stewart Tumut Shire Council

    According to Tumut shire council the curfew is
    a condition of development consent and could only be changed by Ministerial consent.
    This condition arose from the Commission of
    Enquiry and was supported by the applicant.
    The Council has no authority in this matter
    to amend the condition.
