2015 National Local Roads and Transport Congress
17 - 19 November in Ballarat, Victoria.
The National Local Roads and Transport Congress has always been, and continues to be, critical in providing a platform to engage with the Federal Government and Opposition on road and infrastructure policies and initiatives.
The Congresses have a reputation for influencing significant change. For example, the very first Congress resulted in the Roads to Recovery program in 2000. The 2013 Congress campaign to renew the Roads to Recovery program was instrumental in securing the renewal of the program until 2019.
Given the increasing fiscal pressure on the Federal Government and recent Budget decisions such as the freeze to the indexation of Financial Assistance Grants, it is more important than ever that local government present a united front when dealing with the Government on road and transport issues, particularly funding.
