Good Move: Fixing Transport Congestion forum in partnership with Infrastructure Victoria

Congestion and crowding on Melbourne’s roads, trains, and trams has to-date been a significant problem hampering Melbourne’s economy and undermining the liveability of the city.
Whilst the COVID-19 crisis has temporarily reduced transport network congestion, failure to implement policies which address pre-existing issues means that congestion and over-crowding will likely re-emerge when full economic activity resumes.
Infrastructure Victoria’s latest report; Good Move: Fixing Transport Congestion, highlights the costs of congestion, and articulates the need for changes in the way Victorians use the transport system. According to the report, the design and implementation of new transport pricing mechanisms will be essential to help improve the efficiency of the state’s transport network, and achieve optimum value-for-money infrastructure investment.
In partnership with Infrastructure Victoria, Committee for Melbourne invites you to attend the forum featuring Jonathan Spear, Deputy Chief Executive and Chief Operating Officer, Infrastructure Victoria, interviewed by Martine Letts, CEO, Committee for Melbourne, and a panel of member experts for a discussion on the potential for developing a transport network pricing regime to help motivate changes in travel behaviour, and to create a fairer, more efficient transport system.

Guest speakers:
Jonathan Spear | Deputy Chief Executive and Chief Operating Officer, Infrastructure Victoria
Moses Lee |Manager, Economics and Modelling, Infrastructure Victoria
Alison Leighton | General Manager Strategy, Planning and Climate Change, City of Melbourne
Peter Kartsidimas | Senior Manager Transport, Planning and Infrastructure, Royal Automobile Club of Victoria (RACV)
