Home' Future Building Australian Infrastructure Review : Volume 3 Number 2 Contents Infrastructure has been a constant in my career,
and I am very keen in my role to advance our
industry, and for Transurban to play a big part in that
I'll get straight to the point that I'd like to make.
In the not-too-distant future, we will see variations of
network pricing in Australia in order to better utilise
our transport infrastructure.
Whether it's corridor charges, congestion
charges, demand pricing or distance-based tolling,
network pricing will have to be introduced to fund
infrastructure, manage demand and promote public
It's very important to talk about all three of those,
because people will hear what they want to hear.
The contractors will hear, 'great, we're going to fund
infrastructure with this'; the press will hear: 'managed
demand -- you're talking about congestion tolling,' so
that is going to be dif cult publicly.
The government will hear 'you want to
promote public transport,' and that's positive. I
think it's important that all three of these things
are managed together.
Looking at our major motorways, it's obvious that
we need new capacity and we need to nd better
ways to utilise our existing assets.
Network pricing will inevitably have a place in
the transport network to manage demand and
upgrade transport infrastructure, says Transurban
Chief Executive Scott Charlton.
