Quick thanks on slow speeds
Bass Island Line (BIL) would like to thank Grassy port users for following the 10km/h speed limit within the port boundaries.
A speed monitoring system operates on the wharf. As a truck enters the wharf’s operational area the monitoring system registers the vehicle’s current speed.
Your speed: safety in the port.
The speed limit on the wharf is 10km/h and this is well signposted.
BIL Manager Operations Rhys Cropper said that prior to implementing the speed monitoring system some trucks had exceeded the speed limit.
“Since implementing the speed monitoring system the outcome has been outstanding,” Rhys said.
“We have observed a positive change in behaviour from truck drivers and we’re grateful for that.
“At the end of the day this is about making the Port at Grassy safe for everybody, including customers and staff.
“Safety is our number one priority and I’d like to express my thanks to all the truck drivers for coming on board and following the speed limits,” he said.
After more than a year of service, BIL Business Manager Tom McBroom has stepped down to pursue other career opportunities.
BIL and TasPorts wish Tom all the very best for the future and thank him for his contribution to the company.
Rhys Cropper has now taken on the task of running BIL. His official title is Bass Island Line Manager Operations.
Welcome: BIL’s new Manager Operations.
Customers who previously communicated with Tom can now contact Rhys via his mobile on 0400 698 187.
