Roads Australia (RA) is the national peak body for roads and integrated transport.
A not-for-profit, non-political organisation, we bring industry, government and communities together as equals to lead the evolution of Australia’s land transport and mobility networks.
Our 150+ members are drawn from across the public and private sectors and include all of Australia’s road agencies, major contractors and consultants, motoring clubs, service providers and other relevant industry groups.
We run over 90 events a year, ranging from small, intimate boardroom style lunches and policy workshops to major industry conferences.
In so doing, we provide unprecedented opportunities to network at the most senior organisational levels, as well as contribute towards practical outcomes and policy solutions.

The ability to influence policy outcomes
RA is uniquely placed to facilitate high-level engagement between government and industry in the transport infrastructure sector.
Each year, we bring together road/transport agency heads and CEOs of our Tier 1 members to review, exchange ideas and find common ground on the priority issues that impact on transport planning, procurement, delivery and operation in Australia.
The issues identified at these workshops drive our ensuing activities across five policy streams - Transport Reform, Safety, Capacity, Journey Reliability and Sustainability. Within each stream, regular workshops allow our members to contribute back into the process.
This 'two-way street' approach ensures our agenda is relevant and represents the best interests of the community as a whole.
