RA and Infrastructure Victoria Transport Network Pricing Webinar

24/04/2020 14:00 to 24/04/2020 15:00

Venue: via Zoom

Last month Infrastructure Victoria (IV) released a new discussion paper, Good Move: Fixing Transport Congestion, advocating a comprehensive change to the pricing of our transport system.

Michel Masson, CEO, IV will introduce Jonathan Spear, Deputy Chief Executive and Chief Operating Officer, IV to present the key findings from the paper, and lead a discussion on how the current COVID-19 crisis might impact on the updated 30-Year Infrastructure Strategy due out in the middle of next year.

Jonathan will be joined in the discussion by:

  • Moses Lee, Manager, Economics and Modelling, IV
  • Our moderator, Clare Gardiner-Barnes, Board Member and Transport Reform Policy Stream Chair, Roads Australia and Head of Strategy, Planning and Innovation, Infrastructure NSW.

We also want to hear the views of our webinar participants, so we'll be incorporating an interactive Q&A following the formal presentations.

With Infrastructure Victoria keen to further develop its recommendations on transport network pricing, this webinar is a great opportunity to contribute to the 'ground floor' debate.
