Reforming our transport funding model is not something we can only talk about in theory.

We need to commit to a fair and sustainable system that will allow us to invest and use the infrastructure more efficiently so we can shift the dial on congestion and ensure our cities really are the most liveable in the world.

There is no doubt that reform will not be easy and is not going to happen overnight, but we, at Transurban are taking some of the first steps. We would like to collaborate and further partner with industry and governments to continue the discussions on reform.

We are optimistic that with the right message and opportunity to connect with Australians we can ensure our quality of life continues through better transport.

"Ultimately governments will determine how we move forward but they will only be able to do so effectively with the support of industry and more importantly our communities."

Scott Charlton, Chief Executive Officer
