Samuel’s Musician Of The Week: Chris de Burgh Record heat? What record heat?

B-Triple trucks on the Hume Highway

An email to 2GB’s Andrew Moore

G’day Andrew,

I don’t have a problem with B-Triples on the Hume Hwy. As long as overtaking them isn’t an issue, which it’s not on a double-lane dual-carriage road, it’s fine.

Where it gets a bit hairy is on roads like the Newell Highway in Western New South Wales where it’s a single-carriage road with one lane in each direction. That made me nervous a few times, and yet, have a think about it, when was the last time you heard about a B-Triple accident?

I wouldn’t put them on roads with steep bits and sharp corners like the Great Western Highway or the Kings Highway, but the Hume should be fine.

Regards,
Samuel Gordon-Stewart
