Anna advises all levels of governments on infrastructure investment priorities and leads the development of the national Infrastructure Priority List.

Anna’s work over the last three years has institutionalised the Priority List. The March 2018 publication of the List identified over $55 billion worth of potentially “nation-shaping” investment priorities, covering 12 Projects and 84 Initiatives.

As IA’s chief economist, she also oversees the ongoing development of IA’s Assessment Framework which was recently updated in March 2018



Excellence and Innovation in Moving Freight




Excellence and Innovation in Moving Freight - Fremantle Port

A critical component to a port’s operation, the efficient interaction between the wharves and the wider hinterland is often overlooked. Fremantle Ports has placed a special focus on these activities in recent years.

A key area of this emphasis, is the operations of heavy vehicles within the Inner Harbour precinct. Previously, Fremantle Ports had only rudimentary visibility of heavy vehicle activities in this area. Consequently, it had little influence during periods of operational stress.

Fremantle Ports then invested in developing an innovative software and hardware technology-based control system. This provided it with a unique degree of visibility of landside road operations and, more critically, influence on those operations. This was progressively developed as a set of interlocking sub-systems.

Detection and reporting elements in Vehicle Detection (VDS) and Queuing Control Systems (QCS), provide the operational intelligence to perform health checks on the system. When issues arise, these systems provide warnings to allow corrective action. Should congestion develop and an on-port operation requires relief, a Congestion Management System (CMS) kicks in to divert vehicles away to safe areas while the congestion is rapidly tackled. The automated messaging and direct-to-driver telematics-powered Driver Information Service (DIS) also provides immediate information to enable transport operators to make timely, informed decisions.

This highly effective congestion visibility and control solution, unique in design, application and operation, was devised using a highly innovative mix of technologies and bespoke programming.

Excellence and Innovation in Moving People



Excellence and Innovation in Moving People - Gold Coast City Council
Sponsored by Keolis Downer

In 2011, the Gold Coast won the bid to host the 2018 Commonwealth Games. The City of Gold Coast (city) had a lead role in facilitating transport to support the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018), the biggest event to be held in Australia in over a decade.  

The primary transport focus for the City was ensuring the transport network was ready to facilitate the required Games overlay (including significant capital and maintenance upgrades) and most importantly to keep the city moving during the event through the successful delivery of the Travel Demand Management (TDM) program.

 The TDM program successfully influenced travel behaviour to make efficient use of the transport network. More than 7 million estimated trips were taken from 4–15 April and more than 5.5 million of those were made on the public transport network. This project delivered the largest ever business and industry engagement program which enabled the successful operation of the network

Excellence and Innovation in Safety


Excellence and Innovation in Safety - eStore Logistics

eStore Logistics conducted an expansive and detailed audit as part of the company’s ‘Safety First’ continuous improvement program. The audit findings and root cause analysis identified an unsatisfactory risk of pedestrian and forklift collision and risk of strain and fatigue during fulfillment activities. Several safety initiatives were implemented including safety equipment, processes changes and warehouse management system algorithms which allocate work in a manner which segregates people and forklifts and manage fatigue and strain. The result was zero reported near miss incidents between pedestrians and forklift operators over the past nine months and improved staff morale and productivity.

Excellence and Innovation in Humanitarian and Defence Logistics and/or Transport



Excellence and Innovation in Humanitarian and/or Defence Transport and Logistics
- Fremantle Port

Controlling landside congestion is a key operational focus for Fremantle Ports. It has developed the Truck Control System (TCS) using a first-in-class mix of individual technologies to innovatively provide intelligence of critical causal events. It then allows Fremantle Ports to use that intelligence to act on issues, while providing targeted on-port operators the means to act on issues.

 The system is highly adaptable through minimal:

• Administrative involvement of supply chain participants or Fremantle Ports personnel

• Reliance on third party infrastructure and a high degree of portability.

Fremantle Ports seek to assist key operators to reduce the impacts of any incidents and issues and provide a clear understanding to those concerned that Fremantle Ports and others in the supply chain are aware of incidents in place and expect the participant causing these issues to resolve them. That is, provide support for such a participant to resolve the issue.

Hobart bypass concept revived as solution for 'car-dependent' city's future

For more than 50 years the urban planning profession has adopted the model of redesigning our cities to provide high density settlements aligned to linear mass transit routes as a way of getting people to abandon car use. Nowhere in the world has this model been successfully adopted. Car use continues to increase, low density suburban development continues to expand and urban areas are restructuring around multiple nuclei.

Does Tyre Pressure Affect Tyre Performance?

But, our trucks use one pressure for all tyres, regardless of the load on each tyre. Why would anyone run the same pressure on a tyre supporting 3 tonnes and on the same size tyre carrying only 1.7 tonne. Why would anyone run the same pressure on the same tyre when it is supporting half a tonne, or less, as on an empty truck?
