The SLGAAP team will contact road managers who nominate assets and complete the expression of interest via the NHVR Portal when future Rounds of nominations are expected to open.

Please consider the asset selection criteria when nominating assets for your local council area. This will be used to prioritise the 'assets of significance' and make sure assessments are completed on assets that provide the greatest connectivity and community benefit. For more information on this selection criteria, see Priority Routes
