Brisbane Urban Corridor shortcut penalties enforced
The Gateway Motorway is one of the alternative routes

 

Trucks weighing more than 4.5 tonnes using the Brisbane Urban Corridor between Rocklea and Wishart as a shortcut have begun receiving infringements, Transport and Main Roads (TMR) Queensland has announced.

This heavy vehicle access restriction is in place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A 'No Truck' sign is shown on the route as per Queensland road rules.

Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras are in use on this corridor.

The ban period follows a trial of the ANPR technology that commenced in October 2018, following concerns regarding traffic and congestion in the local neighborhoods.

Heavy vehicles (excluding motorised caravans) cannot access that route without a local destination within the corridor.

In an ANPR camera detects a vehicle, the fines can total up to $130 and three demerit points for individuals, or $652 for organisations.

Operators should plan their journey along the Logan and Gateway motorways, TMR advises.
