New Heavy Vehicle Monitoring For The ACT

New heavy vehicle monitoring cameras have been activated on both sides of the ACT’s Federal Highway near the NSW border, forming part of the National Compliance and Information System (NCIS).

The system consists of 6 new automatic number plate recognition cameras that will monitor 2 lanes and emergency stopping lanes in each direction on the Federal Highway, taking a photo of the front of each truck that passes by taking record of the date, time and number plate.

ACT Roads minister Chris Steel said the cameras will integrate with others in conjunction with the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) at key points across the country. They will ensure safety is maintained for all road users by facilitating real-time monitoring and providing compliance data.
