The following description was taken from VicRoads: Construction Trucks and Community Safety
We’ve developed new materials to help protect vulnerable road users when they’re travelling near worksites and around construction trucks.
In partnership with state government departments, non-government organisations and industry, the Construction Truck and Community Safety Project provides new tools and ways of working to improve safety for pedestrians, bicycle riders and motorcyclists. This page has been created to share the resources we’ve developed over the past three years to help state and local government, developers and utilities better manage their construction projects and the construction industry improve delivery, with more consideration for vulnerable road users.

- Truck safety features
