Bryan Nye, CEO, Australasian Railway Association delivered this presentation at the 2014 Light Rail conference in Melbourne. Across the globe the conception and delivery of light rail projects has been growing at an incredible rate. Seen as an efficient and sustainable way to alleviate the congestion that cripples the expansion of many key urban zones, light rail is fast becoming a central solution in the evolution of Australia's major urban areas. In order to work towards a congestion free future, it is imperative that federal and state governments support light rail projects.

Light Rail 2014 explored all the possible funding options for light rail projects, while also looking at international case studies, the latest rolling stock, braking technology, among many more. For more information about the event, please visit the conference website:

INDUSTRY UPDATE Encouraging Government to invest in light rail Bryan Nye, ARA CEO ABN 64 217 302 489


OUR ANNUAL CUSTOMERS... 167 million light rail customer journeys 620 million heavy rail customer journeys 787 million customer journeys 930 million tonnes of freight


CONGESTION IS CRIPPLING OUR CITIES •  By 2020 it will cost Australia $20.4 billion / year –  additional travel times –  increased vehicle operating costs –  poorer air quality –  decreased productivity

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR INDIVIDUALS? An ARA commuter cost study found: •  Commuting to work five days a week by car, costs the average Australian $11,031 •  By leaving the car at home, the average commuter could save $5,400 •  Not owning a car at all and commuting with public transport could save the average commuter $9,425

THE SOLUTION? •  Integrated transport systems –  Road –  Light Rail –  Heavy Rail –  Buses –  Cycling –  Walking ALL MODES WORKING TOGETHER

US & CANADA TRANSIT INVESTMENTS 2014 New Transit Investments= $815 billion


CURRENT FEDERAL FUNDING $35.5 billion Infrastructure Investment Program ROAD – more than $20 billion RAIL - $300 million $6.7 billion: upgrade the Bruce Hwy $5.6 billion: finish the Pacific Hwy duplication $1.75 billion: Roads to Recovery Programme $1.5 billion: WestConnex, Sydney $1.5 billion: East-West Link, Melbourne $1 billion: Gateway Mwy North upgrade, Brisbane $700 million : Toowoomba Second Range Crossing $686 million: Gateway WA Project, Perth $615 million: Swan Valley Bypass, Perth - Darwin Hwy $500 million : upgrade South Road, Adelaide $300 million: Inland Rail

GOVERNMENTS MUST INNOVATE •  IA has costed our infrastructure backlog at $300 billion •  Governments cannot afford to continue funding infrastructure from general funds •  We must get smarter at funding •  ARA recently released a paper “Innovative funding and financing for public transport” to spark debate

ALTERNATE FUNDING TOOLS Dedicated revenue tools are being used around the world to invest in transport: –  Transit-oriented developments –  Value capture –  Congestion charging –  Sales tax –  Payroll tax –  Fuel tax

A Canadian Case Study •  $34 billion pipeline of transport projects •  Metrolinx, Ontario, Canada Investment Strategy •  Adopted the position: “everyone benefits” from transport improvements, therefore the strategy aims to ensure “everyone contributes”

FRANCE LEADS THE WORLD Over the last 12 years, light rail km’s in France have multiplied by five. The French payroll tax is credited for the extensive light rail investment.
