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.

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, submitted for funding 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 as part of a merit-based process.
