Federal election 2019

Transport infrastructure

May 3 2019

The future prosperity of Australia will depend on embracing new technology to address critical national challenges.

The Academy has identified six key priorities for an incoming federal government, where immediate action will result in significant benefit to Australia.

We will profile one priority a week through the campaign. This week’s priority is Transport Infrastructure.

  • Adopt standards and policies that support a transition to low-emission vehicles, including support for infrastructure such as charging networks, which should be supplied by low-emission energy sources.
  • Prepare regulations and infrastructure to enable Australia to be a leading adopter of safe and convenient transport systems enabled through cooperative intelligent vehicles.
