Australia's national road network is a $280 billion-plus asset.
The Australian road network covers more than 817,000 kilometres.
Approximately 657,000 kilometres are controlled by local government - although State-controlled roads account for about three quarters of all vehicle kilometres travelled.
There are more than 37,000 road bridges across Australia.
More than three quarters of all passenger kilometres travelled in Australia occur on roads.
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.
