How To Get Involved
The NACOE Program runs on a rolling four-year basis, with projects generally spanning one to three years. Planning of the upcoming year’s program begins in January / February of each year.
The Program relies on the input and collaboration of the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads and ARRB, as well as collaboration with industry to develop ideas for projects across the seven key discipline areas –
Heavy Vehicle Management.
