Transport analysis and modelling

Moving the Australian economy

Deloitte Access Economics analyses and models how transport and the economy interact. We have analysed transport projects, strategies and policy across road, rail, air, sea and pipelines.

Transport is central to the Australian economy. Our sea and air ports connect us to the world’s markets; roads and rail move goods around the country. Australians spend an average of 53 minutes a day commuting to and from work and Australian Governments spend in the order of $20 billion a year on roads alone.

The benefits of mixed use in the Southern Industrial Area

The strategic potential of Sydney's South

Commissioned by Goodman Australia (Limited) this report examines the benefits of mixed use in the Southern Industrial Area (SIA) in Sydney. The area is close to Sydney CBD, Port Botany and the airport and forms part of the NSW Government’s Global Economic Corridor. Rezoning and future development in this region therefore has significant economic and social implications for the economy of the Sydney Local Government Area (LGA) and Metro Sydney.

Opportunities for greater passenger rolling stock procurement efficiency

Efficiencies in rail procurement

Deloitte Access Economics produced a report for the Australasian Railway association which investigated inefficiencies in the current approach to procuring rolling stock in Australia. This identified that procurement was not well timed, planned or ordered at an efficient scale. We estimated the direct budget savings from better procurement practices and translated this into flow on economic benefits.

Improving Air Access

Liberalising air services agreements

The regulatory stance towards Air Services Agreements (ASAs) is of great economic and social importance for Australia. The Australian Airports Association (AAA) engaged Deloitte Access Economics to examine the potential economic impacts of liberalised ASAs.

The true value of rail

Identifying ways to help rail achieve its potential

This report, written for the Australasian Railway Association, seeks to identify and quantify, where possible, the benefits from rail transport that are not captured in prices and which accrue to the community at large. These benefits include: improved land use and urban densification; lower carbon emissions; reduced congestion; fewer accidents; removing barriers to social inclusion; improving land values; and enhanced energy security.
