The Minister for Transport and the Minister for Roads and Ports have published a release to describe the change to the new Integrated Transport Authority.
The Ministers said the establishment of the authority will – for the first time – ensure planning and policy across all modes of transport, including roads, are fully integrated.
The Minister for Transport writes in this release:
This means RailCorp, Sydney Buses, the RTA and other transport agencies will no longer be responsible for major procurement, long-term planning and policy – instead, they will focus on service delivery.
