2022 National Local Roads and Transport Congress

Registrations are now open for the 2022 National Local Roads and Transport Congress, to be held in Hobart Tasmania from 2-3 November.

This year’s event will focus on how local government can help address Australia’s transport productivity challenges and the road safety crisis on our local roads, while building sustainable and resilient infrastructure.

The Congress will also examine national heavy vehicle access reforms in the pipeline and the opportunities and challenges they will present for councils. With increased EV adoption also on the national agenda, delegates will hear about what councils can do to help prepare and transition to a lower emissions future.

The 2022 Congress is a critical opportunity to engage with and work through these issues with national experts and local councils from across the country.

Some of the speakers confirmed so far include Marcus Spiller from SGS Economics and Planning, Marion Terrill from the Grattan Institute, Steve Verity from IPWEA, and Gabby O’Neil from the National Office of Road Safety.

Early bird registrations close on 7 October, and a draft program is now available online.
