Speakers

The Hon. Gladys Berejiklian, NSW Minister for Transport

Event overview

The Australian domestic passenger task is dominated by road transport, mainly passenger cars which remained relatively constant in the six years to 2009-10 but grew again in 2010-11 and 2011-12. Passenger travel on other modes increased in recent years, with travel by air increasing rapidly since 2001 (BITRE, Australian Infrastructure Yearbook, October 2013).

In Sydney more than 630,000 trips are made to the city's centre each weekday and this figure is expected to grow to 775,000 over the next 20 years.

In the first session for the 2014 NSW Transport Infrastructure series, CEDA welcomes NSW Minister for Transport, the Hon. Gladys Berejiklian to provide an update on transport in NSW as well as address key initiatives of the Sydney City Centre Access Strategy as to how different transport modes can work together to:

  • Reduce congestion;
  • Provide for future growth; and
  • Improve the customer experience.
