NTC framework to provide decision makers clearer information

NTC seeks feedback on transport productivity
NTC chief executive Paul Retter says the framework will help mould better decisions for the future.

 

The National Transport Commission (NTC) is seeking feedback from industry and government bodies, and transport operators to help develop a new framework that will define and measure Australia’s land transport productivity.

The framework will not only help both the government and the industry keep track of the national land transport productivity performance, it will help administrators make improved decisions regarding infrastructure investment, industry regulations and operational improvements.

NTC chief executive Paul Retter says the framework will give decision makers a better snapshot of the industry.

"There is an old saying that you can’t really improve what you don’t measure," Retter says.

"This project will help us define and measure land transport productivity so we can ensure Australia’s strategies, action plans and future decisions deliver the benefits we need."

The NTC is asking relevant stakeholders to provide feedback to a range of questions including:

  • What factors should be included?
  • Can current productivity measures be applied and do we need to supplement them?
  • How should the information be collected and presented?
  • How would you use the productivity framework?

Submissions can be made via the NTC website before October 6.

The framework will be presented to transport ministers at the Transport and Infrastructure Council meeting scheduled for November 2017.
