Trangie Truck Wash Unveils a Makeover in Major Upgrade

Livestock carriers and freight truck operators are set for a squeaky clean experience with the newly improved truck wash facility located in Trangie. 

The upgraded facility was designed following extensive consultation with truck operators and industry organisations to meet the high standards required by the agricultural and freight sectors. 

Improvements include realignment and modification to accommodate road trains and B Doubles, a new sloping wash pad to allow sediment to freely flow out of crates as well as superior water pressure ensuring maximum power to wash out dirty crates and truck bodies.

Member for Dubbo and Shadow Minister for Agriculture, Mr. Dugald Saunders MP, highlighted that the upgrade is fantastic news for the agricultural and freight industries. 

“Truck washes are essential not only for safe and clean travel for livestock but also for reducing the spread of weeds and diseases across NSW.”

“With freight movement expected to increase over the next 5-10 years, this state-of-the-art facility is crucial for improving outcomes and productivity within the sector,” said Mr Saunders.

The Trangie Truck Wash upgrade has biosecurity and user safety at the forefront of its design with features such as underground power, improved water pressure, drainage and sediment ponds. 

Narromine Shire Council Mayor, Clr Davies said, “Whether you're a contractor, casual hauler or livestock producer, this modern system will streamline the process of decontaminating trailers between loads, enhancing both cleanliness and efficiency”.

“The unique geographic position of the Narromine Shire guarantees this necessary upgrade to meet the growing demands of livestock and freight carriers.” 

Council is thrilled to have a project that supports a vital part of the freight sector. Such investments are crucial for ensuring our communities have the infrastructure needed to thrive, added Clr Davies.

The Trangie Truck Wash is located off Saleyards Road, and is now fully operational and can be accessed by members of the trucking industry who possess an Avdata key.
