NRMA urges take-up of truck retrofit cash


NSW Government offer too good to refuse and may save on fines says CEO Stuart

March 1, 2013

The National Roads and Motorists' Association (NRMA) is calling on truck drivers to take up an offer which would slash their costs of engine repairs and retrofitting by half.

The New South Wales Government is offering to pay half of the costs in a bid to improve air quality in the M5 East Tunnel.

NRMA CEO Tony Stuart has welcomed the government’s decision to extend the use of the tunnel filtration system for at least three months.

"The NRMA has thousands of members on the road in heavy vehicles and we don’t want them to be fined $2,000 for excessively polluting the M5 East Tunnel," Stuart says.

"The offer by the NSW Government to pay half the costs of getting heavy vehicles retrofitted so that the trucks are not emitting as much smoke is a good one and we encourage operators to apply if they are eligible."
