With current Covid restrictions ramping up, many truckies are being
refused access to toilets at delivery sites; and current processes are
making it near impossible for some to adhere to fatigue management
rules.

Big Rigs came across the letter, which was first shared on the ‘Transport – COVID-19 CENTRAL’ Facebook page.

One Sydney driver we spoke to, who preferred not to be named, was
handed this letter at Andrews Meat in Lidcombe instructing drivers to
“stay in your vehicle at the loading dock”.

It goes on to state, “No access allowed to the warehouse building, including: smoking area, toilets/amenities.”
