Office of Future Transport Technologies Revealed

The Australian Government is establishing an Office of Future Transport Technologies to help prepare for the pending arrival of automated vehicles and other transport innovations.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said the initiative was made possible through a $9.7 million investment by the Liberals and Nationals’ Government.
