Victorian Transport Infrastructure Conference 2014

Point Advisory participates in the 6th Annual Victorian Transport Infrastructure Conference 2014

Come and join Point Advisory at the 6th Annual Victorian Transport Infrastructure Conference will be held on 17 -18 June at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Over the 2 days, this conference will address how major transport projects shape the way communities grow, with the public and private sector coming together to discuss the prioritisation, planning and delivery of critical transport infrastructure projects. In Victoria, it is anticipated that between 2013- 2014, roughly $3 billion dollars will be invested into roads and non-road transport.

The Federal Government has also signalled increased government expenditure in infrastructure funding to help Victoria cope with bleak economic times, in part due to the collapse of car manufacturing in Australia.

With this recent announcement and a State Election scheduled for later this year, there has never been a more crucial time for the transport infrastructure sector to learn about the latest developments shaping the industry. Key topics discussed at the conference include; the release of a new Plan to accommodate Melbourne’s growth, the $8 billion East-West Link project gathering speed, Port Melbourne’s Webb dock development and Melbourne Airport’s Masterplan granted Federal approval. This conference will cover these latest project updates and many more as well as evaluate Victoria’s transport policy issues, research findings and best practices. Sectors covered in the conference agenda include: Roads, Rail, Public Transport, Regional Transport, Ports, Freight & Logistics. The conference further provides delegates with the perfect opportunity to discuss topics and issues presented.

It provides a fantastic networking opportunity where transport professionals, operators, contractors, consultants, investors can learn about the latest plans, developments, share experiences and lessons learned.
