More than 60 delegates from across the region attended the Central West NSW Heavy Vehicle Breakfast Forum recently.
The event, hosted by Parkes, Forbes and Lachlan Shire Councils, was essential in providing opportunities to share information, network and discuss local issues.
The Councils’ Road Safety and Injury Prevention Officer, Melanie Suitor said: “Freight is important – everything we consume comes off the back of a truck, and safety in that sector is vital.”
The forum was attended by local transport companies, truck drivers and farmers along with various associations and government agencies.
“There were a lot of questions about rest areas, local access and the cost savings that are offered by PBS vehicles,” Melanie said.
