Heavy Vehicle National Law and other legislation amendment bill 2016 has now been passed in Queensland. The proposed changes will significantly alter the current regime and impose a ‘primary duty’ on all parties in the chain of responsibility to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the safety of road transport activities. This means that enforcement agencies can bring proceedings against parties in the chain without some harm or incident having to first occur. The changes also impose significant maximum penalties that give teeth to the primary duty and align with other national safety laws.
