Truck and dogs aligned with WestConnex pulled over in heavy vehicle crackdown

Truck and dogs sub-contracted to WestConnex are among the vehicles being pulled off the road for heavy vehicle checks in Sydney’s south-west.

NSW Police cracked down on heavy vehicles in Roselands this morning, checking 68 vehicles in total.

NSW Police Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy says the result is “mixed”, with 15 defects discovered.

Six traffic infringement notices were issued and two roadside drug tests came back positive, with traces of meth found in one driver’s test.

“We’ve been coming down on these trucks and dogs for some time now, we’ll continue to do that,” Assistant Commissioner Corboy tells Ray.

“What we’re trying to tell people today is we can pop up anywhere. We’re going to continue to do these and we’re going to continue to target these truck and dogs.”

The Assistant Commissioner says they’ll continue to “stamp out” companies and drivers doing the wrong thing.

“We’ll continue to do this to make sure that they know they’re dealing with an organisation that won’t stand for any of this rubbish.”
