This week Diesel News brings you the trucking Twitterverse unchained, with bulletins from around the country. We have the NSW Police and their charm offensive, making real progress, there’s a new truck show on the calendar and it doesn’t look like the West Gate Tunnel in Melbourne is going to happen any time soon.
The series of ‘Coffee with a Cop’ events being held at truck stops can be nothing but a good thing, taking the heat out of a relationship which can get a little fraught, between truckies and Traffic Police:
The ATA was proud to partner with @nswpolice for last week’s Coffee with a Cop.

The West Gate Tunnel, if it ever gets built, would make access to Melbourne Port much less contentious for the trucking industry. It would also take the heat out of another fraught relationship, between anti-truck pressure groups, in Yarraville and Maribyrnong, and the truckies running containers in and out of the port:
