Agricultural machinery owners and operators are invited to get road ready for the 2020 harvest season, by picking up a free ‘Moving Harvest Machinery’ USB from all agricultural machinery retailers and rural supply stores in the Parkes, Forbes and Lachlan Shires. The USBs are also available at the councils’ administration offices.
The USB contains all the relevant notices for safely and legally moving agricultural machinery and combinations on the road along with other useful harvest safety information.
“Safety and compliance during harvest is very important. Operators need to be aware of their responsibilities and ensure that all warning devices and travel requirements are adhered to,” said Parkes, Forbes and Lachlan Shire Councils’ Road Safety and Injury Prevention Officer Melanie Suitor.
“It has been updated with the most current notices (as of September 2020) and provides other relevant information.”
“It is advisable to regularly check the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator’s website (www.nhvr.gov.au) for updated notices and/or changes to operating conditions.”
“The USBs are always very popular. This year there are 1,000 available. Let’s work together to have a safe harvest,” Melanie said.
