TWU partners with NRMA to get a truck driver's view


New online survey run by the TWU and NRMA asks truck drivers to have their say on NSW roads

June 8, 2011

Truck drivers are being asked to have their say on NSW roads as part of an initiative run by the Transport Workers Union and the NRMA.

The TWU has joined the motoring group in launching an online survey that asks drivers to provide their thoughts on a number of issues involving the quality of the road network, rest areas and traffic congestion.

The survey quizzes drivers on what they think the government’s road infrastructure priorities should be and the key improvements needed to make roads safer.

It also asks them to list the most frustrating types of driver behaviour, with the choice ranging from slow-travelling motorists, people cutting in front of heavy vehicles, tailgating and negligent driving.

In a statement to his members, TWU NSW Secretary Wayne Forno says the survey is an opportunity for drivers to have their voice heard on the issues affecting them.

"Your union will take your survey feedback into account and act as your voice in addressing the issues important to you on NSW roads, which as your workplace you know best," he says.
