Nolan’s Interstate Transport and Volvo Group Australia revealed a B-double trailer set commemorating truck drivers in the lead up to the Lights On The Hill memorial event. The B-double set is designed with artwork paying tribute to those who have lost their lives in transport accidents.
Sponsored by Volvo Commercial Vehicles Australia the new refrigerated units acknowledge the ‘Lights On The Hill’ memorial in Gatton and the sacrifices made by drivers and their families while keeping the wheels of the Australian industry turning.
Before the trailers go to work behind a new Volvo FH16 hauling produce for Nolan’s, the commemorative trailers will take part in The Lights on the Hill Memorial Convoy this Saturday, October 2nd.
Located an hour west of Brisbane’s CBD, the Gatton Memorial in the heart of the Lockyer Valley, is updated each year and is marked with a two-day convoy featuring drivers and vehicles from the local area’s transport companies.
As a pillar of the Gatton community for over half a century, the Nolan family is intrinsically linked with The Lights on the Hill Memorial, participating every year and offering support in numerous ways. As the Memorial has grown, so too has the Nolans’ involvement.
“It’s important to be with the drivers and wives who have lost loved ones and friends in the industry,” said Flea (Adrian) Nolan, Director Nolan’s Interstate Transport. “To be involved is a particular passion of mine and it is great to see the event and the recognition it gets grow every year.”
The sponsorship by VCV Australia includes supporting the design and branding of the trailers, which in this case features a mural of the memorial wall in Lake Apex Park.
“It is great to see the partnership between Nolan’s and Volvo continue here today, placing a strong emphasis on safety and reminding each of us, truck drivers and all road users about the importance of being safe on our roads,” said Scott Buchholz, Assistant Minister for Road Safety Freight And Freight Transport.
