NTC comments on transport reform progress

National Transport Commission (NTC) Chief Executive, Paul Retter, said the fifth edition of the National Transport Reform Implementation Monitoring Report shows that the adoption of national transport reform continues to trend in the right direction.

“The report provides an independent assessment on how well the Transport Infrastructure Council’s nationally agreed transport reforms are being implemented in practice,” said Retter.

The latest edition of the report covers progress on implementing reforms during the 2016-17 fiscal year.

“Over the past year we’ve seen some progress in key areas of reform, and we’re encouraged by the level of engagement we have with state and territory governments on the critical issue of national consistency,” said Retter.

“It’s important that we continue to explore ways to optimise the effectiveness of our existing laws and regulations – with road and rail safety at the forefront – while also making it easier for industry to operate across borders,” he said.

Retter also acknowledged the contributions made by state and territory governments, the Commonwealth Government, the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR), the National Rail Safety Regulator and Transport Certification Australia (TCA) in the development of the report.
