Our Focus

A new transport landscape is emerging in Australia today - one where users shape the solutions, and both public and private enterprises co-exist to design, build, operate and maintain a national network of integrated, customised mobility solutions.

Coupled with that, fast evolving automated vehicle and energy technology and shared peer-to-peer market opportunities are changing the face of public and private transport.

The Transport Reform Chapter is broadly focused on how we can best maximise the opportunities and respond to the challenges, ensuring all Australians derive equal benefit from these new and exciting transport scenarios.

In 2017, the Chapter’s goal is to support the work of both governments (at all levels) and private sector partners by:

  • continuing to inform policy development in key transport reform areas,
  • encouraging and strengthening the relationship between governments and the private sector,
  • sharing the expertise of diverse organisations (including start-ups and entrepreneurs) with public and private sector members across Australia, and
  • inspiring public and private enterprise with international and successful local insights.

2017 Roads Australia International Study Visit 

In April 2017, Roads Australia the national peak body for road infrastructure stakeholders, led a delegation of senior government and transport industry officials on a global study visit to find out how international jurisdictions are preparing for their driverless roll-out. RA predicts that every new vehicle sold in Australia within 10 years will be driverless, and dedicated lanes for automated vehicles will operate across our road networks within 5-10 years.

Review the full report Preparing for the driverless revolution from RA's International Study Visit to North America, the UK and Europe. It offers key observations and discusses options for government and industry to take forward in this new world. 

View the key findings with RA's CEO, Ian Webb.
