What is SLGAAP?

The Australian Government provided the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) with more than $8 million in funding to assist road managers with the assessment of important infrastructure assets, like bridges and culverts. A better understanding of these assets on key local government heavy vehicle routes will improve heavy vehicle access across Australia.

The Strategic Local Government Asset Assessment Project (SLGAAP) was established in September 2019 and will complete its final implementation activities by the end of June 2021.

The intended outcomes of the national project are:

  • Identifying the capacity of current and potential heavy vehicle routes on key local government roads.
  • Engineering assessments to quantify the potential capacity of key local government-owned road assets.
  • To provide a single point for the collection, storage and sharing of road asset information for the benefit of heavy vehicle operators, road managers and regulatory partners.
  • To provide a resource toolkit to assist road managers with road asset assessment and decision-making regarding heavy vehicle access.
