Australia needs to invest more in infrastructure
National Road Transport Association (NatRoad) is supporting calls by eminent economists for Australia to invest more in infrastructure.

"NatRoad especially supports the call for infrastructure investment to be properly evaluated by an independent agency or agencies," says CEO Warren Clark.

"What is urgently needed is the establishment of a regulator who has control over the way tolled roads are planned, built and operated.  At present, the process of deciding which roads should be tolled and how they are integrated into the road system is poorly planned."

Clark is also calling for the establishment of an independent price regulator for heavy vehicles as an essential step in maintaining the long-term viability and productivity of the road freight transport industry.

NatRoad provides an industry voice for the $96 billion road freight industry.
