TRUCKS FINED * Australia: If avoid the toll-road by running on the surface roads
* NSW - Transurban to get paid if trucks use NorthConnex motorway, and if they don't
Sydney's NorthConnex motorway below Pennant Hills Road will receive compensation from the government if too few trucks use the tunnel. But the government will not say how many trucks are required to use the NorthConnex tunnel before compensation will be paid, nor how much toll-road company Transurban might receive in compensation... The operator of NorthConnex will be paid compensation if not enough trucks use the 9 kilometre motorway... The fines will help ensure trucks do not use local roads, but will also ensure an income for Transurban, which is contributing the lion's share of funds required to build the $3 billion road...
