Waverley Creek Rest Area

One of RAAG’s first concerns when formed in 2002 was fatigue related crashes on the Bruce Highway between Rockhampton and Mackay.

RAAG advocated for a Heavy Vehicle Rest Area at Waverley Creek, 160 kms south of Mackay in the centre of a very high fatigue crash zone, culminating in the opening in July 2012 of a magnificent facility.
