National Local Roads & Transport Congress

20-11-2018 / / 3 Days

Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia

Local governments are responsible for some of the most critical transport assets in this country. Local roads and bridges connect individuals, communities and businesses and often provide connectivity between major freight routes. It is critical that this role be recognised and funded appropriately to ensure that our nation’s roads and transport networks are fit-for-purpose now and into the future.

The theme of this year’s Congress is Connecting Transport Networks Now and into the Future. The importance of improved transport connectivity to the economic wellbeing of Australia is well established. Improved transport connectivity allows greater accessibility to employment and markets, and cost savings in terms of reduced transit times, less traffic congestion and reduced transport costs.

The key benefit of improved transport connectivity is its transformational effects – making cities and regions more accessible, more liveable and creating opportunities for economic development that could not otherwise exist. Carefully planned, multi-modal transport systems promise to make cities more efficient and liveable. Improved transport connectivity is also critical to regional development. Greater regional connectivity will promote the development of regional areas, make relocation to these areas more attractive and reduce growth pressures on major cities.

The importance of integrated transport and land-use planning to the successful development of transport connectivity is clear. Integrated planning has significant benefits, not least of which is matching transport to land-use in a manner which optimises both. Sessions that will underpin and enliven our Congress’ theme will include: Implementing the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy; Land Transport Market Reform; Technology is changing how we travel; Realising regional and industry benefits from Inland Rail; the Challenge of delivering Integrated Transport and Land-Use Planning; Sustaining our Regional Airports and Stepping up Safety on our Local Roads.

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Informa’s 18th Annual Public Private Partnerships Summit 2018 will aim to unravel why some public private partnerships work and others don’t, exploring the secrets of building infrastructure better together. It will outline the recipe for success that has been created by some projects that delivered on time and in budget. It will examine local and international visions for innovations in PPPs into the future – and outline the opportunities for the private sector at both a national and state level. It will promote a learning and sharing of experiences environment, examining the key threads in any PPP deal: finance, the bid process, project management, and the legal and risk management aspects throughout the duration of a project.

Light Rail 2019

04-03-2019 / / 2 Days

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Across Australasia, light rail is reshaping the transport landscape and transforming the way we travel by offering smart solutions and completing multimodal connections. Light rail provides sustainable, smart and safe solutions to the congestion and capacity challenges currently faced by our cities and regions. IA’s recent ‘Future Cities Report’ projected that by 2046 Australia’s population will increase by 11.8 million people, with about 75% of this increase in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth and recommended an increased investment in public transport infrastructure. With investment in light rail at record levels, now it is the time to build a long-term, strategic future that benefits all.

Light Rail 2019, with a new networking dinner for 2019, will bring together operators, manufacturers, contractors and industry and government stakeholders of every level across the light rail sector to hear cutting-edge case studies, project updates and learn from successful projects in Australasia and the world.
