A confluence of factors have emerged in recent years putting road user pricing policies in the spotlight.
The Minister for Urban Infrastructure has identified the growing need to change the way we pay for transport. The Federal Government’s Competition Review identified the need for improved pricing signals to manage traffic congestion and a range of infrastructure bodies have called for demand based road user pricing to improve the productivity of Australian cities.
These seminars, in Sydney and Melbourne bring together leading thinkers and policy makers from Australia and the Netherlands to discuss critical issues related to road user pricing.
