|National Local Roads & Transport Congress
||20-22 November 2018||Alice Springs Convention Centre,||NT||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.”
Sessions 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.
