EVENT OVERVIEW

Through regulatory reform, national standardisations, new technologies and targeted expansion, the capacity and productivity of transport infrastructure can be optimised.

The peak national infrastructure body Infrastructure Australia is reforming the way our nation plans, assesses, finances, builds and uses infrastructure. National priorities and national coordination are seen as the only alternative.

Responding to ongoing growth demands, Australian airspace and air services are focused on enhanced planning flow, improved cross jurisdiction negotiations, logistics reform and technology. The connecting and standardising work of the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator is expected to bring about billion dollar efficiency, safety and productivity gains.

The transport infrastructure to support growth is essential to meet future demand. Join industry leaders bringing about reforms and taking new approaches to optimise use of our transport infrastructure. Focus on our transport network, given the significant potential for improvement, is critical to productivity and to ensuring our future infrastructure investment is truly strategic.
