Queensland Trucking Association wants interstate drivers separated to stop virus

User Rating: / 0

Mr Mahon said while some of the preventative measures aimed at reducing the risk of a COVID-19 outbreak had been onerous, no one wanted the crisis to worsen.

“We haven’t had an infection breakout and touch wood we won’t get one,” he said.

“The fleets have done their utmost to manage hygiene control.

“They’ve done an impressive job.”

The QTA issued an urgent notification on Sunday less than an hour after Queensland’s chief health officer informed it about the Crossroads Hotel cluster.

Mr Mahon said while southern truckies were likely more at risk, drivers from all over the country used the route.

“There are something like 7000 trucks a night on the Hume Hwy travelling between Melbourne and Sydney,” he said.

“The Brisbane to Sydney route wouldn’t be as high but you’d have to looking at 4000 to 5000.

“Certainly nowhere near that number would’ve ended up at the Crossroads Hotel.”
