The Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Programme (HVSPP) is an Australian Government initiative to improve productivity and safety outcomes of heavy vehicle operations across Australia, through funding infrastructure projects.

The Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Programme (HVSPP) is an Australian Government initiative to improve productivity and safety outcomes of heavy vehicle operations across Australia, through funding infrastructure projects.

The Australian Government has committed $200 million in new funding over five years from 2014-15.

The specific HVSPP objectives are to:
- Increase productivity of heavy vehicles by enhancing the capacity of existing roads and improving connections to freight networks; and
- Improve the safety environment for heavy vehicles.

State, Territory and Local Governments are eligible to apply. The programme will contribute a maximum of 50 per cent of the total project cost.

Proponents are encouraged to consult with industry and community more broadly on potential projects to ensure community views and industry priorities are considered in the development of proposals.

Projects will be selected as part of a competitive, merit based process.

Payments to all successful projects (including Councils) will be made through National Partnership Agreements to state/territory governments.

The first three rounds of the HVSPP provided $120 million in funding from 2008-09
