Minister Graham outlines NSW Government priorities to RA members

Roads Australia held an Industry lunch in Sydney on Friday, to update the transport sector on the priorities of the Minns Government with NSW Minister for Roads, John Graham.

Attended by more than 200 public and private sector transport representatives, Mr Graham discussed the ongoing review into both the Commonwealth and NSW infrastructure pipelines, making observations about the challenges and opportunities facing the industry.

Importantly, Minister Graham reiterated the need to support a consistent pipeline of investment while encouraging greater transparency around the cost of infrastructure delivery, understanding the complexities of the economic environment. To accompany the substantial investment in mega projects, the NSW Government is looking to increase its focus on crucial local road projects to improve connectivity for suburban and regional residents.

Alongside pipeline planning, the Minister is actively engaging in discussions about the future of transport and how long-term planning can ensure the NSW transport network is integrated, modern and delivers outcomes for consumers.  

With a diverse ministerial portfolio including the arts, the nighttime economy and jobs, the Minister has a keen eye for rethinking the state’s roads and infrastructure policies to ensure their benefits transcend the transport sector and act as enablers for access to social infrastructure, housing and broader social and economic enhancements.  

RA continues to facilitate and lead these important conversations between government and industry and thanks Stantec for partnering with RA to deliver this event.  

RA’s next Industry lunch will be held on August 22 with Victorian Deputy Premier and Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, Jacinta Allan. Secure your spot for this event here.
