Delivering for Australia's most important asset

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.

  • Australia's national road network is a $280 billion-plus asset.

  • 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.
