This report (by Associate Prof Paul McLeod) reviews the issues relating to future funding for transport infrastructure in Western Australia, starting with a review of the broader issues in transport infrastructure planning and funding, including the circumstances in which there can be market failure in private and public sector funding. The report looks at funding as an integral part of the broader planning and pricing policies required for effective infrastructure outcomes and reviews experiences with a range of specific funding instruments. The analysis concludes with an assessment of the  relative  merits of various possible approaches to funding for Western Australia.
