Transport Reform Paper

The National Transport Commission (NTC) recently released Exploring the Opportunities for Reform  discussion paper, on the Australian transport system.

NTC presents the important argument that a good and reliable transport system  benefits the nation’s economy and the prosperity of its citizens, by allowing the efficient movement of people and goods around cities and urban areas.

The paper states that, ‘the current Australian transport system, is a result of a highly urbanised society but with low densities resulting in a dependency on cars and road infrastructure investment.
