NSW Transport Infrastructure Leaders 2017 - Final Agenda

A rail and road building boom is taking place across Sydney and NSW, with many projects already under construction, and a number in the pipeline or awaiting funding. In addition, the Federal Government is embarking on one of the most ambitous infrastructure programs in a generation, which includes a second International Airport at Badgerys Creek.

The program will explore the necessary financing, delivery models, and project management strategies to ensure project success, and the delivery of long term transport plan to provide economic growth across Sydney and NSW.
