Tim Reardon welcomed by industry at RA lunch in Sydney

Above: Guests at our Sydney lunch

As Secretary of Transport for NSW, Tim Reardon is currently overseeing one of the busiest periods of transport infrastructure delivery in the State's recent history, spearheaded by the CBD light rail project.

Despite this, Tim took time out this month to speak to over 160 industry leaders at a RA industry lunch in Sydney.

Tim provided a comprehensive and invaluable overview of the structure in place within Transport for NSW and was keen to emphasise the importance of building strong and open lines of communication with industry.  He underlined this by providing an outline of the longer-term project pipeine for NSW. 

Tim also made the presentation to the state winner of the ARRB - RA Student Transport Research Award, Iman (James) Mohammadi from the University of Technology, Sydney.

Our thanks to our sponsor GHD for creating this opportunity for industry to meet Tim.

Delivering for Australia's most important asset

As the peak body of road industry stakeholders, Roads Australia provides a national forum for debate and discussion on how we can best manage, fund, maintain and renew this vital economic asset for the benefit of all Australians.

Membership of Roads Australia is your entree to the most powerful networking experience in the Australian transport and infrastructure sectors. As we like to say, the top people come because the top people come.

Roads Australia has a unique approach to policy. We work from inside the tent, providing regular opportunities for our public and private sector members to come together in our Policy Chapters to drive practical policy outcomes. It's a formula for influencing policy like no other, and it works.

Did you know?

  • Australia's national road network is a $280 billion-plus asset.

  • The Australian road network covers more than 817,000 kilometres.

  • Approximately 657,000 kilometres are controlled by local government - although State-controlled roads account for about three quarters of all vehicle kilometres travelled.

  • There are more than 37,000 road bridges across Australia.

  • More than three quarters of all passenger kilometres travelled in Australia occur on roads.

  • Public transport is a major user of our road network. In Melbourne, for example, more than 80 per cent of all public transport kilometres are travelled on roads.
