Crowd sees the Lights

THE air was full of the sounds of rumbling engines and blasting horns on Saturday as more than 800 trucks rolled into the Gatton Showgrounds for the annual Lights on the Hill convoy.

Drivers from all over southern Queensland filled the Warrego Highway to honour those lost on Queensland roads.

Cement Australia driver and Grantham resident Wally Sewell said the Lights on the Hill convoy was a great thing for the community.

“The convoy brings a lot of people and money into the community and every year it gets bigger and bigger,” he said.

“The more people that come, the more knowledge the public gain about the transport industry.

“I have been in the industry 37 years and I haven’t come across anything else like this.

“Without trucks, Australia would stop, and events like this go a long way to improving awareness.”

Lights on the Hill founder Kathy White said a percentage of funds raised this year would go towards flood victims.
