‘Today’s announcement regarding a proposal to upgrade the Logan Motorway by increasing the existing Toll on Truck drivers is at best half baked and at worst policy on the run,’ Peter Biagini said.
‘We have significant concerns regarding this announcement that yet again more economic pressure is placed on truck drivers to keep their wheels turning to make ends meet.’
The announcement regarding the upgrade to the Logan Motor Way was disappointing given the lack of consultation of your TWU – the largest organisation representing Transport Workers in Queensland.
While your TWU supports the merits of this project in principle what we will not support and will not be silent about is the increased pressure that will be placed on drivers if Tolls are increased to fund this project.
Your TWU will never back down when it comes to standing up for safety on our Roads for all users.
