Transport organisations join forces

The National Rural Women’s Coalition (NRWC) has announced that Transport Women Australia Limited (TWAL) will be joining its Board.

This agreement marks the first time in more than 10 years that a new member organisation has joined the National Rural Women’s Coalition.

TWAL was formed in 1999 to assist those working in all forms of transport by providing scholarships, networking, leadership and mentoring to its members.

NRWC Chair, Leonie Noble, was pleased to announce the new partnership.

“We’re very excited to welcome Transport Women Australia Limited and utilise its high level of experience and expertise in transport to bring about change in this space,” she said.

TWAL Chair, Jacquelene Brotherton, said the new relationship would allow the organisations to learn from each other and continue to grow.

“I’m looking forward to the opportunity to broaden our horizons and to do more for our rural communities,” she said.

Brotherton identified the huge cost of road freight in rural, regional and remote Australia as an issued to be addressed, and she said those who live outside of metropolitan should not be penalised or disadvantaged.

In other news, a mass offence on the roads, according to the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR), has lead to action against an off road party.
