The Federal Government has turned to the Business School world renowned Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies (ITLS) for insights into possible road pricing reform.

The Minister for Urban Infrastructure, Paul Fletcher, recently met with the Director Professor David Hensher, and senior ITLS staff members for wide ranging discussions on road pricing options.

These included a possible reduction in registration charges, the introduction of peak distance based charging and cordon based daily charging.

“The Federal Minister is very keen to find ways to best trial possible changes and we are keen to assist,” said Professor Hensher.
