5th Annual VIC Transport Infrastructure Conference 2013
19 Jun 2013 - 20 Jun 2013
Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
The largest conference focusing on transport infrastructure projects in Victoria.
The 5th Annual Victorian Transport Infrastructure Conference will be held on the 19th-20th June at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. Major transport projects shape the way communities grow and over the 2 days at the VIC Transport Infrastructure Conference, the public and private sector will come together to deliver an informative program which will discuss the prioritisation, planning and delivery of critical transport infrastructure projects.
Victoria faces numerous transport challenges which if left neglected, will constrain the growth and opportunities available to all Victorians. With an increasing population comes increasing demands on existing infrastructure. The metropolitan rail network is close to capacity, recent upgrades to the West Gate-M1 corridor is a bandaid solution to the critical need for alternative corridors to funnel eastwest transport demands. Victoria is a key freight and logistics centre for Australia, but capacity at the Port of Melbourne is constrained. Whilst Melbourne Airport has adequate capacity for more flights there is limited capacity in road access, which still remains the major transport mode to Melbourne Airport. At the 5th Annual Victorian Transport Infrastructure Conference you will hear up to the minute information on Victoria’s current and proposed transport projects, alternative funding frameworks as well as proposed changes in how we manage and build transport systems. Sectors covered in the conference agenda include:
Freight & Logistics
The conference further provides delegates with the perfect opportunity to discuss topics and issues presented and provide a fantastic networking opportunity where transport professionals, operators, contractors, consultants, investors can all learn of the latest plans, developments, share experiences and lessons learned
The conference room will be set up in cabaret style with a question and answer segment in place to encourage and enable delegates' opinions to be presented.
