Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program

About the program

The Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program (HVSPP) is an Australian Government initiative to fund infrastructure projects that improve the productivity and safety outcomes of heavy vehicle operations across Australia.

The Australian Government is providing $607 million over the 13 years from 2013-14 to 2024-25, with an ongoing commitment at least $65 million per year from 2025-26.

Projects are funded in funding rounds. Since the program commenced in 2009 seven funding rounds have been undertaken.

Funding Rounds

Round Seven

On 29 September 2020, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, the Hon Michael McCormack MP, announced funding for 146 projects under Round Seven of the HVSPP in accordance with the National Land Transport Act 2014.

State, territory and local governments were encouraged to submit funding proposals for projects that will upgrade road infrastructure to improve heavy vehicle safety and freight efficiency, saving lives and reducing travel times for freight on Australia's roads.

Consistent with previous rounds, projects under Round Seven were selected following a merit-based process.
