Tamworth Heavy Vehicle inspection facility closed for maintenance
14 DECEMBER 2016
Maintenance work will be carried out on the Roads and Maritime Services heavy vehicle inspection station at Cook Street in Tamworth from Monday 19 December until 20 February 2017.
Roads and Maritime Services said the essential maintenance had been scheduled for the holiday break to minimise disruption to customers.
“About 1300 heavy vehicles are inspected at the Tamworth facility annually, with more than 10,000 vehicles being safety checked since it opened its doors in 2008,” the spokesperson said.
“Work to be carried out includes servicing testing equipment and sealing the driveway with asphalt.
“During work the heavy vehicle inspection stations will be unavailable to customers.
“Heavy vehicle owners who are due to have their trucks inspected have a range of options to ensure they can renew their registration on time.
“Additional booking time slots are available in the lead up to Monday 19 December and in February to cater for demand.
“Alternatively Roads and Maritime Heavy Vehicle Inspection sites at Gunnedah, Willow Tree, Armidale or Walcha will be open and can carry out inspections.
“Heavy vehicle users can also renew their registration with an inspection report from a Heavy Vehicle Authorised Inspection Station, then book a Roads and Maritime Heavy Vehicle Inspection when the site reopens.”
Heavy vehicle users can book an inspection online or call 1300 364 847. Roads and Maritime heavy vehicle inspections can be carried out three months before the registration expiry of the vehicle.
The community is thanked for their patience while this important work is carried out.
