Livestock operators are able to access a new truck wash at Warialda in New South Wales' Gwydir Shire.

The truck wash forms part of the Warialda high productivity vehicle project, jointly funded under Round Five of the federal government’s Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program (HVSPP).

State regional transport minister Paul Toole says the new truck wash gives the local trucking industry a place where stock effluent could be removed from trucks and trailers in an environmentally-friendly fashion.

Members of the trucking community with an Avdata key can now access the truck wash facility.

"The facility provides a huge benefit to the broader community through the removal of stock effluent from town streets, rural roads and other areas where effluent tanks were traditionally emptied," Toole says.

The new truck wash is seen as a benefit for the local trucking and agricultural community across the northwest.

"This project is about supporting our stock carriers to improve their efficiency and truck cleanliness, which I know has been widely welcomed by the Warialda community," federal MP for Parkes and local government minister Mark Coulton says.

"As a freight hub located on one of Australia’s biggest transport routes, Warialda is a natural choice for improved infrastructure," state Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall adds.

Gwydir Shire mayor John Coulton lauds the project as three tiers of government working together, adding a healthy interest was shown for a facility to help prevent effluent from falling onto roads.

"We are very proud of our state-of-the-art truck wash – a very modern facility," Coulton says.

Federal transport minister Michael McCormack says the new facility offers a number of services to the region’s heavy vehicle operators.

"The Warialda truck wash facility lets our freight operators take a break from long journeys and give their heavy vehicles a decent clean."
