2019 Industry Workshop on Transport Infrastructure Delivery

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 transport infrastructure projects.

However, the odds of successfully delivering these capital intensive projects to agreed budgets or timelines is no better than a coin-toss! That said, it is clear that the future of infrastructure assets will be subjected to even more increasing degrees of complexity, extreme competition and uncertainty with respect to the outcomes of climate change, population growth and the emerging disruptive nature of smart technology, automation and digitization.

This workshop will be structured to allow the discussion of current transport infrastructure delivery problems and solutions from industry organizations and academic researchers. Presentations would cover the following themes:

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