15 November 2019

The 2019 Australian Infrastructure Audit makes several important findings on our freight networks and the challenges that they face. The findings by Infrastructure Australia highlight a number of issues and priorities that are well known to the Australian trucking industry.

The ATA submission to Infrastructure Australia, following the 2019 Australian Infrastructure Audit, recommends that governments:

  • Implement independent regulation of toll road and landside port charges for heavy vehicles
  • Improve heavy vehicle access and rest areas
  • Improve the business case assessment of proposed infrastructure projects
  • Upgrade rural, regional and remote road infrastructure
  • Implement supply-side reforms to how roads are funded
  • Better integrate land use and transport planning
  • Deliver practical, evidence-based policies to reduce urban congestion.
