Road pricing: what’s the case?

Road pricing is without doubt a contentious and difficult issue for politicians and the community at large.  But that’s no reason to shy away from an informed and open debate.  On January 31 in Melbourne, Roads Australia is hosting a Road Pricing Forum that will give protagonists for reform the opportunity to state their case.  The Forum will include presentations from Infrastructure Partnerships Australia, Consult Australia and the Bus Industry Confederation – three important stakeholder groups that have recently released comprehensive policy positions on road pricing.  Professor John Daley from the Grattan Institute will discuss the international experience, and Maxine McKew will host a ‘Q&A’ style panel session of expert commentators dissecting the proposed solutions and questioning the way forward.

This event is a ‘must’ for anyone with an interest in how we fund and finance road construction and maintenance at a time when traditional funding sources are under increasing pressure.
