Infrastructure Victoria is undertaking community consultation to inform its research into reforming how Victorians pay for the transport network.
In our 30-year strategy released in 2016, we recommended the introduction of a comprehensive transport network pricing scheme within 5-15 years to help tackle congestion and create a fairer, more efficient and sustainable way of paying for Victoria’s transport system.
This kind of reform is difficult which is why we need help from the community.
We are running a community panel which is made up of 41 people who were independently recruited to answer the question:
- Under what conditions, if any, would the community accept a change to the way they pay for roads and public transport?
To deliberate on this question, the panel will meet for two full Saturdays and participate in online discussions. The panel’s final report will be published on our website and will help us develop recommendations to government on transport network pricing.
Please see the document library to read the information the panel has been provided to participate in this process.
The panel will meet on the following days:
- Saturday 23 February, Victoria University, Flinders Street
- Saturday 2 March, Victoria University, Flinders Street
Observers are invited to view the panel and process in action on the Saturday panel sessions.
As an observer, you will be provided with a set of guidelines to ensure there is no disruption to how the panel works together. There will also be some closed sessions where observers will be asked to leave so that the panel members are able to deliberate.
Places for observers are limited. To register your interest, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
