Road Pricing Webinar  

A Smarter Way Forward  

Have you ever hit a pothole and wondered, "Why aren't our roads better maintained?" Or sat in gridlock thinking, "There must be a better way"? 

Our current transport funding model is not just creaking under the strain – it is fundamentally broken. 

The New Zealand Initiative’s upcoming report, “Driving Change: How Road Pricing Can Improve Our Roads,” written by Senior Fellow Dr Matthew Birchall, offers a novel solution to our transport funding woes: a comprehensive road pricing scheme called Smart Road User Charges (Smart RUC). 

Whether you are a daily commuter, a weekend road-tripper, or just someone who cares about the future of our country, this webinar is for you. Let's discuss how we can create a better transport system for all New Zealanders.  

Join Matthew and Executive Director Dr Oliver Hartwich as they discuss the opportunities and challenges of implementing Smart RUC, and how this system can create a more efficient and sustainable transport network.  

Date: Tuesday, 9 July 2024 
Time: 3.00pm to 4.00pm
