Making Reform Happen: Using incentives to drive a new era of infrastructure reform


Making Reform Happen: Using incentives to drive a new era of infrastructure reform is the sixth paper in Infrastructure Australia's Reform Series.

The paper builds on the Australian Infrastructure Plan, calling on the Australian Government to implement a new incentive-based funding approach to drive nationally significant infrastructure reform: Infrastructure Reform Incentives.

The paper includes independent modelling commissioned by Infrastructure Australia that shows the potential economy-wide impacts on GDP and taxation revenue of five indicative reforms that are well suited to an incentive-based funding approach:

  1. Introducing road user charging.
  2. Reforming the urban water sector.
  3. Reforming the electricity market.
  4. Reforming land tax.
  5. Franchising public transport services.
