Progress on reforms


Each year, we provide a progress report to the Transport and Infrastructure Council on the implementation status of nationally-approved transport reforms.

Annual monitoring continues until either all participating jurisdictions have completed the final implementation milestone (note: participation in reform is subject to change), or if there is a nationally-agreed direction from ministers or senior officials that reform monitoring is no longer required.

About the report

The reporting period is from 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018. Any progress after 30 June 2018 will be reported in the 2019 monitoring report, which is due for release in December 2019. If a milestone was achieved in the previous monitoring report, it is not reported in the current or subsequent reports.

The 2018 report contains progress details on the following reforms:

  1. The 7th amendment package for the inclusion in the Heavy Vehicle Law Amendment Act
  2. The 12th amendment package to the Australian Road Rules
  3. Updated Model Subordinate Law on the Transport of Dangerous Goods and amendments to the Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods Code by Road and Rail in Australia
  4. Review of regulatory telematics
  5. Performance-based Standards implementation plan.
