Heavy vehicle detection camera reactivated in new location

Monitoring camera

The Transport for NSW Bargo Safe-T-Cam, located on the Hume Highway, has, after being moved to a new location, been reactivated.

The new camera was relocated to Douglas Park South overpass and Pheasants Nest, 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 and/or uninsured, fatigue offences relating to travel between two or more cameras, attempts to avoid detection at camera sites and failures to enter inspection stations.

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

NHVR Director Central Region, Brett Patterson, said 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,” he said.
