Roads to riches: how to drive our transport dollar further
Too much of the unprecedented sums spent on transport infrastructure in the past decade has been spent on the wrong projects, and in states and electorates where elections are won and lost. In the current election campaign, both main parties are once again making promises that breach principles and processes designed to ensure value for the infrastructure dollar. Nick Greiner, former NSW Premier and former chairman of Infrastructure NSW, discussed a better approach with Grattan Transport Program Director Marion Terrill, author of our recent report, Roads to riches: better transport investment. This Forward Thinking event was hosted by John Watson, Cities and Policy editor of The Conversation in Sydney.
