Heavy vehicle National Network Map unveiled by NHVR

The NHVR has officially launched its heavy vehicle National Network Map, allowing heavy vehicle industry and road managers to see national road network information in one central location.

A press release from the NHVR’s Chief Executive Officer, Sal Petroccitto, labelled the new heavy vehicle National Network Map as “groundbreaking”, highlighting the development of the map as something that was occurring for the “very first time”.

Petroccitto also outlined a range of benefits from “key features” in the new heavy vehicle National Network Map, such as providing the single authoritative map to enable the heavy vehicle industry to route their journeys on approved networks, being able to view available networks across borders in one location (removing the need to go to multiple state websites), the ability to search by and view available networks for more than 1,000 heavy vehicle configurations, providing better visibility and fleet management decision making, and providing real time changes to road networks to ensure availability of the most accurate network access information.

Other benefits outlined by Petroccitto included an easily identifiable view of approved, conditional or restricted routes using a traffic light colour scheme, and map layers that can be turned on and off to identify rest areas, height restrictions and road disruptions.

The National Network Map has been available since December 20. More information on the map can be found through the NHVR’s fact sheet.
