Roads Australia Event Details

RA Policy Webinar | Social and Economic Value of Australian Roads

08/12/2021 13:00 to 08/12/2021 14:00

Venue: via Zoom

Join us as we discuss updated research commissioned by Roads Australia and prepared by BIS Oxford that highlights the economic and social value of Australia’s road network.

Australian roads ensure the smooth-running of our daily lives while making a valuable contribution to our economy. The road network is also an integral part of Australia’s broader multi-modal transport network, connecting people to the employment, goods and services that are essential to modern life.

This webinar will provide an important perspective by setting out the size and scope of that contribution, whether measured in terms of economic outcomes, employment opportunities generated or wider community benefits that flow from a well-planned, delivered and operated road network.

 Date: Wednesday 8 December 

Time: 1.00pm - 2.00pm (AEDT)
