COVID19- Map makes finding a place to rest easier

NatRoad is excited to share the new NHVR online tools that maps service centres, truck stops and roadhouses that remain open for heavy vehicle drivers.

NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said that the tool provided information about services and trading hours for service centres right across the country.

NatRoad agrees that having access to food, showers, toilets and appropriate rest is critical for drivers to properly manage their fatigue.

“This new mapping tool will allow drivers to jump online and see quickly which facilities are still operational and providing these important services, allowing them to plan routes and breaks," Mr Petroccitto said.

This tool was developed following protocols released by the government and NHVR last week to allow heavy vehicle drivers to continue to access these facilities.

The map can be accessed here and will also be available through the NHVR Route Planner shortly.
