Reform the transport funding system

Section: 7.2. Improving funding and financing


Implement a new, fit-for-purpose transport funding system that’s sustainable and adequate for meeting future transport investment requirements.

The system should incorporate principles for user charges and best-practice funding and include shifting vehicles to time, location, distance and level-of-service-based pricing. Establishing a new system should include:

  1. Establishing necessary transport funding requirements.
  2. Introducing necessary complements or replacements to Road User Charges and Petrol Excise Duty.
  3. Determining how additional funding, if required, should be collected.
