ATA NSW Road Access Pricing submission

25 February 2013

This submission discusses the heavy vehicle charges included under the PayGo system, and calls for national consistency in road access pricing. It also includes a series of recommendations for creating a fair and transparent road pricing system, such as including all road users in the PayGo model.

The submission shows that road access pricing based on the actual cost of using of road infrastructure would make it prohibitively expensive for heavy vehicles to use rural roads. It calls for the NSW Government to consider its community service obligations to avoid restricting transport services to these remote areas.
