Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2012
The second ALC/Department of Infrastructure and Transport Dialogue was held in Canberra on 23 February 2012. The event was the second Dialogue between the two bodies and focused on ALC participants providing their perspectives on progress with current reforms and future reform priorities, and the Department advising on progress with current reforms and future strategic directions. Discussions broadly ranged across the Department’s work in infrastructure investment, national transport regulation and industry productivity. They included issues such as: • boosting private sector investment in infrastructure • supporting national freight connectivity at ports • finalising national regulation reforms for a January 2013 commencement • chain of responsibility and the role of industry- driven codes to drive safety in the industry • national in-vehicle telematics policy • progressing the enhanced air cargo security framework • the Stronger Shipping for a Stronger Economy package • the Council of Australian Governments Road Reform Plan. A key action from the Dialogue was agreement for ALC to be consulted on the development of nation- building network strategies to ensure that the needs of freight receive appropriate consideration in the planning process. aLC/dIT dialogue 16
