Rail Infrastructure Conference 2007

By January 6, 2007No Comments

As the Vice-President of the Public Transport Users Association (PTUA), I have been invited to speak at the 2007 Rail Infrastructure Conference to provide a users perspective of the success factors required for rail based public transport.

After decades of neglect, states around Australia are reinvesting heavily in rail and public transport due to economic, social and environmental benefits of sustainable transport. Unfortunately, Victoria is lagging behind the rest of the country since no new rail extensions are planned for at least 15 years.

This conference provides the opportunity to further advance the debate around the infrastructure needs of not just our urban cities but for the whole of Australia.
