A Nationally Consistent Regulatory Framework

Issue: Until recently, there were 23 transport regulators covering heavy vehicles, maritime safety and rail safety.   To some degree this has been addressed by the national transport reforms, which has involved the establishment of 3 national regulators in these three areas.  The potential benefits have been estimated at $30 billion over 20 years. The reform is still in its infancy, so it is hard to judge whether there benefits will be realised, and there is still much to be done particularly in the heavy vehicle sector.
