What is SLGAAP?

In late 2019, the Australian Government provided the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) with $7.96 million in funding to assist road managers with the assessment of important infrastructure assets, like bridges and culverts.

The Project received a further $12.1 million boost in the 2021-22 Federal Budget for the next three years, to fund additional engineering assessments of local-government-owned assets.A better understanding of these assets on key local government roads will improve heavy vehicle access across Australia.

The Strategic Local Government Asset Assessment Project (SLGAAP) was established as a national project to:

Strategic Local Government Asset Assessment Project
