2018 National Local Roads and Transport Congress*
ALGA’s Roads and Transport Congress in Alice Springs is just months away with an exciting program planned for delegates.
Under the theme Connecting Transport Networks Now and into the Future, the Congress will feature presentations by leading industry professionals who specialise in safety, connected infrastructure, and those at the forefront of debates surrounding road infrastructure funding reform and public transport policy.
The Congress is also an opportunity to hear from Federal Ministers and Shadow Ministers about their visions for the future of transport and how local government fits in to these plans. It is also our platform to fight for our case for vital local government roads and transport funding.
At the Congress in 2000, our united voices inspired the creation of the highly successful Roads to Recovery Program, which has seen more than 60,000 local road sites upgraded and repaired.
It is now time for us to revive our campaign for an increase in funding under the program to $800 million per annum to more sustainably manage our component of the national road network.
