“Greater flexibility is required in scheduling driver deliveries outside of normal operating hours so that supermarkets and pharmacies can meet an increased demand for essential goods,” said a statement from VicRoads.

“Heavy vehicles can pass time-based curfew ‘no trucks’ signs when making grocery deliveries to supermarkets or personal hygiene products to retail outlets.”
