Urban Congestion Fund

The Government is investing around $4.8 billion through the Urban Congestion Fund, to reduce congestion in urban areas. Funding supports upgrades to the urban road network to reduce congestion and ensure commuters get home sooner and safer by:

  • reducing travel times;
  • reducing vehicle operating costs;
  • delivering a more reliable road network for commuters and freight; and
  • addressing local bottlenecks.

A $697 million Commuter Car Park Fund has been established within the Urban Congestion Fund to invest in commuter car park upgrades that encourage greater use of public transport.

The Urban Congestion Fund is upgrading the following pinch points, as well as intersections and commuter car parks at train stations:
