Project 1. Funding transport in Australia

Supervisor:  Prof. Simon Washington s.washington@uq.edu.au

Funding transport in Australia is challenged by the current reliance on fuel excise taxes. This project will examine transport funding mechanisms globally in support of transport, and examine how these mechanisms might be administered in Australia. The mechanisms will include road pricing, pay as you go schemes, pay the pump, cordon pricing, and other mechanisms.
