Do you Need a Licence to Operate a Street Sweeper?

*Last modified June 2020 Quick Links: Wanting to drive a street sweeper?  How to hire a street sweeper with an operator Lets Hire a street sweeper If you are looking to hire a street sweeper but not sure if you need a license to operate one, the answer is yes, you need at least a class C driver's license. While there are no specific street sweeper licenses you need to hold, you can undertake formal training to ensure you are competent to operate. A class C driver’s license is generally the accepted license for operating a street sweeper. But if the street sweeper has a gross vehicle mass of over 4.5 tonnes you will need to obtain a light or medium rigid license. These rules apply to anyone that wants to operate a heavy vehicle on public roads.When hiring a street sweeper they generally come with an operator - wet hire - as construction sites rarely have a spare worker to put in the truck. Street sweeping work is also a demand driven area, when they are needed they’re hired, and when they’re not they finish the hire. This is another reason why street sweepers generally come with operators.

Victoria-New South Wales Interconnector Funding Approved

Funding for the Victoria-New South Wales Interconnector (VNI Minor) has been approved by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER), which will play a significant role in bolstering the electricity supply following the closure of Liddell Power Station in August 2023.The Australian Energy Market Operator’s (AEMO) 2020 Integrated System Plan (ISP) identified VNI Minor as a project required to address cost, security and reliability issues in the National Electricity Market.AER Chair, Clare Savage, said, “VNI Minor was proposed by AEMO in their role as the national planner responsible for identifying new transmission needs to support the energy system’s transition.“In our role, we’ve assessed TransGrid’s proposed costs and determined that they are reasonable. The AER has approved the $45 million that is needed to deliver the project.“The project will increase transmission capacity between New South Wales and Victoria and provide consumers with secure and reliable energy supplies.”VNI Minor is the first ‘actionable project’ to progress under new rules governing the ISP and the AER’s decision is the final stage in the regulatory process.The new rules require the AER to assess the prudence and efficiency of the costs of delivering the option found to offer the highest net market benefits in AEMO’s ISP.The AER’s decision amends TransGrid’s existing 2018-23 revenue determination to account for the costs of delivering the project.Average residential customers in New South Wales will pay an estimated extra $1 on their bills in 2022-23 as a result of this decision.TransGrid Project Director, Dany Gittani, said, “The VNI Minor project will allow more energy to flow between the two states and help lower the cost of wholesale electricity across the National Electricity Market.“The VNI Minor project involves TransGrid installing ‘smart wires’ power flow controller technology within our Stockdill substation in the ACT.‘Smart wires’ technology enables the real-time control of electricity flows along powerlines. The system detects areas of congestion in the network and automatically redirects flows to less congested lines, under certain network scenarios. It will allow more energy to be transferred between Victoria and NSW.“The AER decision enables us to deliver the project to fruition this year.”
