Workshop Overview:

Transport infrastructure projects (e.g. rail, roads, bridges, underground metros, etc.) facilitate economic and social activity in an economy. These assets form the critical lifeblood of economic prosperity and the development of nations. The Australian Government has placed sustained emphasis on economic growth and productivity by investing significantly in major capital infrastructure – $100 billion has been committed to funding infrastructure projects over the next 10 years in the 2019 budget. Most of these projects are in the transport sector.

However, these capital-intensive projects are notorious for the many performance challenges that beset their planning, procurement and delivery – for example, more than 50% of large infrastructure projects experience significant cost and schedule overruns.

This workshop will be structured to allow the discussion of current transport infrastructure delivery problems and solutions from industry organisations and academic researchers. This will create the opportunity to ask critical questions as well as provide a debating forum that will help sharpen our collective understanding of the complexities associated with planning, appraisal, design, finance and governance of large transport infrastructure projects.

Themes for workshop presentations and discussions:

  • Infrastructure Planning & Investment Analysis
  • The Future of Transport Infrastructure
  • Politics, Project Appraisal and Transport Policy
  • Project Risk Quantification and Analysis
  • Megaproject Failure and Success
  • Front-End Project Governance
  • Transport Innovation, Security and Safety
