Victoria Transport Infrastructure Summit brings together government, industry and community to explore best practices and opportunities in implementing Victoria’s future transport infrastructure needs. 
Melbourne will overtake Sydney as Australia’s most populated city by 2026. With neighbouring cities like Geelong and Bendigo experiencing similar growth, Victoria has emerged to be Australia’s fastest growing city. To ensure communities across metropolitan and regional Victoria are connected to jobs, services and transport networks, the government has invested billions in transport infrastructure.  
The Summit will explore:
  • How to develop strategic long-term transport, urban and economic plans to create connected and prosperous communities? 
  • How to strengthen regional Victoria’s transport infrastructure to improve road safety, livability and economic opportunities? 
  • How to attract private capital and tap on alternative funding sources to drive transport infrastructure projects? 
  • How to leverage technology and innovation to improve transport infrastructure efficiency and development?
