  7. CHALLENGES AND $s

  8. STRATEGIC THEMES AND ACTIONS NT Urban Arterial Roads Strategy - new /upgrading major roads in urban centres Investigate innovative project and program delivery methodologies Work with the Planning Commission Develop road networks in Major Remote Towns in line with new town plans

  10. STRATEGIC THEMES AND ACTIONS Implement Regional Roads Productivity Package ($106 million NBP2) Implement the Roads to Recovery Program- $23 million NTG / $28 million to local government councils Develop employment and training capacity in remote road contracts Develop options for better management of local roads Resolve road corridor land tenure on Aboriginal land

  11. STRATEGIC THEMES AND ACTIONS Implement Road Safety and Fatigue Management Program on the National Network Urban Traffic Management Improvements AG Blackspot Program ($1M per year) and HVSPP NT Roads – Safety amenities – Truck Parking, Rest Areas Improve Road Condition Reporting Delivery of Road Safety Education and Awareness Programs

  12. STRATEGIC THEMES AND ACTIONS Asset Management National Network- Pavement Strengthening and Widening ($32.8M)- Repairs and Maintenance ($21M) NT Roads Rural and Urban Arterials and Secondary Local Roads Pavement Strengthening and Widening ($5M) NT Roads Repairs and Maintenance ($74M) Continue condition surveys and analysis at network level to measure performance

  13. STRATEGIC THEMES AND ACTIONS The Environment Review and implement Cyclepath plans forDarwin, Palmerston, Alice Springs, Katherine and Tennant Creek Continue to implement Landscape Plans for urban areas- Katherine, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs

  14. STRATEGIC THEMES AND ACTIONS National Heavy Vehicle Regulator Commenced operating in Queensland on 21 January 2013 offering a limited range of services (NHV accreditation on Performance Based Standards) Jurisdictions are working towards 1 September 2013 to endorse the NHVR to operate nationally NT Government is not yet convinced that the benefits outweigh the costs

  15. AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT FUNDING AND SUBMISSIONS NATION BUILDING PROGRAM 2 The Nation Building Program 2 will commence in 2014-15 for another 5 year program • The Australian Government have committed to two Nation Building 2 projects: • The Regional Roads Productivity Package ($106 million); and • Tiger Brennan Drive CBD to Berrimah Road Duplication ($103 million) • Plus a commitment to fund repairs and maintenance on the National Network • In the 2013-14 Australian Government Budget announcements, the funding has dropped from $474 million for the five years from 2008-09 to 2013-14 to almost half this amount to $244 million

  17. AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT FUNDING AND SUBMISSIONS • 1. Supporting Resource Sector Development Planning Report - $1.5m • Transport Infrastructure • Utilities (power, water and waste water) for Communities that support mining • General community Infrastructure for Communities that support mining or regional hubs • 2. Upgrades to the Tanami Road - $100 to $300m • Application submitted under the newly developed Remote Indigenous Policy Framework • Six options were identified to upgrade the road • All options included extending the seal for various lengths Regional Infrastructure Fund
