Meena Naidu begins temporary role as CRRP Acting Project Director

NTC Chief Officer Projects, Meena Naidu will take on a temporary role as Acting Project Director in a secondment to the COAG Road Reform Plan (CRRP) team.

Meena will utilise her knowledge and experience in heavy vehicle pricing in her new role, and is excited to be joining the team. “I’m looking forward to continuing to engage with all levels of government and industry stakeholders to build on the work carried out to date and develop implementable options to progress COAG’s road reform agenda,” says Meena.

The CRRP project aims to promote a more efficient provision and use of heavy freight infrastructure in the face of a rapidly increasing amount of freight on Australian roads. 

A feasibility study investigating alternative arrangements for heavy vehicle road pricing and funding takes centre stage in the project. The study was completed in December 2011 and will now be considered for endorsement by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG).

A range of alternative charging models were considered in the study, aimed at better aligning the road prices charged with the actual costs imposed by a vehicle on the roads (based on the mass carried, distance travelled and types of roads used). 

“We’re pleased to have Meena join the CRRP project team and look forward to working with her as we prepare for COAG’s direction on the feasibility study,” says Gary Liddle, CRRP Project Board Chairman.
