NSW Treasurers paints bright picture for State at RA lunch

Above: RA members listen to Treasurer Berejiklian at our September industry lunch.

NSW Treasurer Gladys Berejiklian was our special guest speaker at a major industry lunch in Sydney in September.

Sponsored by Altus Traffic, the lunch brought together over 170 members and stakeholders to hear the Treasurer discuss the State's economic outlook and infrastructure financing and spending.

The picture continues to look positive for the Premier State, with recent ABS figures showing NSW experienced its strongest financial year growth in 2015-16 since before the global financial crisis. The data also showed Government investment in NSW grew by 6.4 per cent and private investment was up 4.2 per cent.

Right: Ms Berejiklian answers questions from our audience with RA Board Member, Sandra Dodds, looking on.

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.
