Public transport and productivity

Published February 2014 

TRN argues in a submission to the Senate inquiry into the role of public transport delivering productivity, that the public and political debate on transport needs to shift from 'road v rail' and 'public v private modes' to a more fundamental debate about how can we fund integrated infrastructure solutions that deliver efficiency outcomes across transport as a whole.

Infrastructure Australia

Published March 2016

The Australian Infrastructure Audit provided the strongest evidence yet of the need for a fundamental rethink on how we shape, plan, pay for, operate and maintain our transport infrastructure. Roads Australia offered two submissions to the Audit. The first general submission includes planning for a new age of transport, delivering on customer expectation, leveraging the untapped value of the transport network and establishing a fairer price for users. The second supplementary submission focuses on standards and the value of harmonisation.  

RA welcomes the recommendations since set out in IA's Australian Infrastructure Plan.

Published October 2014
