Phillip O'Neill Director of the Centre for Western Sydney at Western Sydney University


Phillip O’Neill is Director of the Centre for Western Sydney at Western Sydney University. He is an Economic Geographer and an internationally renowned researcher into the economies of cities. He currently leads two Australian Research Council projects on urban infrastructure financing. Phillip is a prominent public commentator and newspaper columnist. He is also the writer of a number of significant reports into the costs of long-haul transport infrastructure for serving Sydney’s ever expanding suburbs.

Abstract:

Transurban is one of the world’s largest motorway corporations and the operator of the major tolled motorways in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. The seminar examines the reasons for the growth and success of Transurban, why the private financing of motorways in Australia is successful, and why alternative investments in public transport in these cities are failing.
