The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) reveals its digital map for operators seeking open roadside facilities during the Covid-19 crisis has drawn huge demand.

Its accessibility tool has been used by more than 600 people a day since it was launched on April 9, equating to more than 6500 individual views, the regulator reports.

It displays service centres that are still open and providing facilities to truck drivers as they continue to deliver essential supplies across the country.

There are currently 420 service centres and roadhouses listed on the map, which is also available as a layer on the NHVR’s Route Planner, displaying information about truck stops and rest stops on the same map used to plot journeys.

"Now more than ever it’s critical that our truck drivers know they are able to access the services they need to do their jobs safely and keep shelves full across Australia," NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto says.

"We are working with retailers and drivers who are continually providing information to update the map as service centres come online across the country.

"I would particularly like to thank the service centres for remaining open to support drivers who I know are grateful to have somewhere clean to stop, get a feed and have a rest."

Any business that isn’t listed on the map is asked to contact the regulator via digital@nhvr.gov.au or Facebook Messenger at m.me/nhvrofficial
