Victoria’s transport system is struggling to cope with increasing demand.
Transport modelling shows most arterial roads and public transport services in Melbourne are at capacity, costing people time and opportunities.
If nothing is done, congestion will get even worse. In 2030, congestion is expected to cost Melburnians on average an extra $1700 per year or $7 per working day. It will also hold back productivity growth and detract from the amenity of city areas.
Just building more infrastructure without managing demand is financially and environmentally unsustainable and does not address the congestion problem.
Infrastructure Victoria is examining ways to manage congestion and get the most efficient use of the transport network.
