VicRoads trial – ban on trucks in right lane of section of Monash Freeway
From February 2018 to October 2018, VicRoads will be trialling a ban on trucks travelling in the far right-hand lane for trucks over 4.5 tonnes in the above trial area on the Monash Freeway. The trial will run for a period of nine months unless trail results indicate otherwise. This is stage 2 of the Monash Freeway Trial, Stage 1 was a speed limit restriction trial in 2016/2017.
The section of the Monash Freeway affected is between Huntingdale Road and Jacksons Road.
Royans encourages all drivers and heavy vehicle operators to log comments about their experience during the trial, and also to let us know as well.

Reminder to Caravaners. The truckstops are for trucks, as they are required by law to have mandatory breaks and there are parking bays specifically dedicated for them at Service Stations and on the road side. There seems to be this systemic issue where Caravaners pull into these parks, which they are not allowed to. Have a touch of common sense for the truckie and DON’T PARK in their designated parks.
It is $1000’s of dollars in fines for a truckie if he misses his break even by 5 minutes. Truckie cannot “just pull into a car space” because all his are full. Common courtesy and sense needs to prevail.
This photo (borrowed from another site) highlights the issue perfectly. Taken by a truckie that can’t find a park but needs his mandatory break.
