With exponential growth in road use, and nearly all goods in Victoria now transported by road, the Victorian road network plays an increasingly integral role in supporting not only Victoria’s economic development, but also social outcomes for communities.
At the Advisian-hosted Roads Australia lunch on Monday, 19 February, acting VicRoads CEO, Peter Todd, shared his insights on the challenges of running a complex road network. He spoke about how VicRoads is rising to meet these challenges by both maintaining, and at the same time, improving the efficiency and capacity of the network.
Peter also mentioned VicRoads’ continued focus on improving road safety particularly in regional Victoria, where Advisian is supporting VicRoads on achieving their ‘Towards Zero’ vision through innovative procurement and delivery support.
With calls for greater innovation and collaboration between industry and government, Peter painted a promising picture for the future of the road network in Victoria but as he stated, the challenge of the 'marathon sprint' is well and truly upon us.
