All state and territory governments now seated at RA's table

Above: The nation's capital territory government is now a welcome member of the RA family.

Roads Australia has closed the loop on engagement with Australia's state and territory governments, this month welcoming the ACT Government's Transport Canberra and City Services Directorate.

RA Chief Executive, Ian Webb, says industry members will welcome the news that every state and territory is now fully represented at the Roads Australia table by their transport and/or roads agency.

"What makes Roads Australia unique is our partnership between industry and government agencies. In welcoming the ACT Government, our partnership model is now even stronger," Ian says.

"We look forward to working closely with Transport Canberra to provide another effective mechanism for them to engage with their industry stakeholders on a broad range of practical and policy issues."

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.
