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.
As part of the Local and State Government Road Safety Package announced in the 2019-2020 Budget, the Australian Government has committed an additional $25 million per year to the HVSPP from 2019-2020. The Government will provide $508 million to the HVSPP from the 2013-2014 financial year to the 2022-2023 financial year, with an on-going commitment of $65 million each year following.
On 31 August 2018 the Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, the Hon Michael McCormack MP, announced the outcome of Round Six.

State, territory and local governments were eligible to apply for funding for projects that would upgrade road infrastructure to improve heavy vehicle safety and freight efficiency, saving lives and reducing travel times for freight on Australia's roads.
The Australian Government contributed up to 50 per cent of the total project cost to successful projects, up to a maximum of $5 million.
Consistent with previous rounds, projects under Round Six were selected as part of a competitive merit-based process. In an effort to allow for a wider distribution of projects, the Australian Government limited its contribution amount to $5 million per project.
The date for the opening of Round Seven has not yet been decided.
