New Guidelines for Qld

The Dept of Transport has released an updated Form 4 this month.  All pilots/escorts should make themselves aware of what is new in Version 7.  You can download a pdf copy from here or from our links page.
A hard copy can be purchased from the Qld Government Book Shop and this also contains the critical roads maps.  These maps apparently can no longer be purchased seperately.

Good start to 2012

2011 was an extremely busy year for our pilots and the website has been a little neglected.  This year is starting off in a similar fashion despite the recent rainfall and highway closures.  Not much happening out West but we have had plenty of pilots moving loads up and down the east coast.  Last month we had several pilots in Broken Hill moving equipment over to Whyalla.

This month we will be in Sydney, Townsville, Mackay, Cairns, Gladstone, Lismore, Chinchilla, Toowoomba and Argyle. Broken Hill will be back on the agenda when the Newell re-opens to wide loads, as will Muswellbrook and Orange.  Our local Brisbane boys have also been kept very busy so far this month.

Rain causing road closures for oversize

Despite the wet weather around the state we have been keeping busy. We have jobs to Adelaide, Townsville, Muswellbrook, Rockhampton, Clermont, German Creek, Mackay, Bundaberg, Newlands Mine as well as local jobs around Brisbane.  Many roads in Western Qld  are still closed to oversize loads and we keep hearing from pilots who have been stranded for days waiting for the roads to dry out.

Now that the rain has eased we may find the highways re-opened so that we are not making quite lengthy detours to get the loads to their destinations.

Drying Out!

Looks like the heavy rain is gone for a while.  Roads are re-opening and the oversize loads are moving again. Already have jobs heading north and south.  The pilots who did the month-long SA/Vic job are now finished and safely home.  They just need to thaw out!
