TfNSW relocates and activates unique safety camera at new site

The NHVR has informed motorists of the special camera’s relocation along the Hume Highway

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) has announced that the Transport for NSW Bargo Safe-T-Cam located on the Hume Highway has been moved to a new location and will be activated from this month.

The new camera will be relocated to Douglas Park South overpass (southbound) and Pheasants Nest (northbound) five kilometres away from the previous location.  

The Safe-T-Cam detects and provides data on heavy vehicle incidents relating to vehicles that are unregistered or uninsured, as well as fatigue offences relating to travel between two or more cameras.

The camera also provides information on vehicles attempting to avoid detection at camera sites and heavy vehicles that fail to enter inspection stations.

The Safe-T-Cam network is part of the NHVR’s heavy vehicle compliance program and is a network of digital cameras that monitor the movement of heavy vehicles. 

NHVR Director Central Region Brett Patterson says the cameras are a way to monitor the movement of heavy vehicles to ensure they comply with registration requirements and their work and rest obligations.  

“The new location of the Safe T-Cam at Douglas Park South overpass (southbound) and Pheasants Nest (northbound) will have fixed signage installed to alert heavy vehicle drivers of the camera at both locations, to ensure safety across the industry,” Patterson says. 

Further information on the Safe T-Cam Network is available here.
