Remote Areas Consultative Group (RACG)


The RACG is made up of transport, heavy vehicle industry, research bodies and road agency representatives from Western Australia, Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia, the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) and the Commonwealth.

The group was established in 2004 to provide a forum for matters affecting operations and transport in remote areas and its purpose is to provide a forum for members to focus on remote area operations and cross border issues with a view to:

  • advise the Infrastructure and Transport Senior Officials’ Committee (ITSOC) and the Infrastructure and Transport Ministers’ Meeting (ITMM) (through ITSOC), on priority reforms for remote areas;
  • improve the efficiency and productivity of transport in remote areas; and
  • maximise safety and environmental outcomes.
The RACG meets bi-annually and the host state/territory, rotates every two years between the key government transport/infrastructure agencies of the RACG jurisdictions.

Western Australia, is the host state for 2021-2022, with the Main Roads Western Australia – Heavy Vehicle Services hosting meetings during this term.

Queensland will be the host state for 2023-2024.
