The Petition of residents of New South Wales brings to the attention of the House their concerns about changes to vehicle classifications by Transurban on the M2 and M7 Motorways. The changes affect vehicles towing a caravan, trailer or boat that is greater than 12.5 metres in total length and more than 2.8 metres high. The changes will see them reclassified as Class B vehicles, which attracts a toll that is three times the previous rate. Rates for the M2 have increased from $7.68 to $23.03 and from $8.24 to $24.72 on the M7 Motorway.
The undersigned petitioners therefore ask the Legislative Assembly to ask the Minister for Roads to change the tolls for vehicles towing a caravan, trailer or boat back to Class A rates.
