We're delighted to host Minister Eva Lawler at this year's Darwin Annual Lunch. Proudly sponsored by InfraBuild.
The Melbourne Annual is far and away the biggest event on our Victorian calendar, a celebration of industry and government success and collaboration in delivering the State's massive transport infrastructure pipeline. This year we're joined by Treasurer Tim Pallas. Proudly sponsored by Laing O'Rourke.

As the peak body of road industry stakeholders, Roads Australia provides a national forum for debate and discussion on how we can best manage, fund, maintain and renew this vital economic asset for the benefit of all Australians.
Membership of Roads Australia is your entree to the most powerful networking experience in the Australian transport and infrastructure sectors. As we like to say, the top people come because the top people come.
Roads Australia has a unique approach to policy. We work from inside the tent, providing regular opportunities for our public and private sector members to come together in our Policy Chapters to drive practical policy outcomes. It's a formula for influencing policy like no other, and it works.
The roads industry contributes over $200 billion of economic value in Australia each year.
The Australian road network covers more than 877,000 kilometres, of which 73 per cent is controlled by local government.
There are more than 37,000 road bridges across Australia.
More than three quarters of all passenger kilometres travelled in Australia occur on roads.
Well over half a million Australians rely on roads for their full-time employment.
Public transport is a major user of our road network. In Melbourne, for example, more than 80 per cent of all public transport kilometres are travelled on roads.
