Actions for Transport 2018
The Auditor-General for New South Wales, Margaret Crawford released her report today on key observations and findings from the 30 June 2018 financial statement audits of agencies in the Transport cluster. Unqualified audit opinions were issued for all agencies' financial statements. However, assessing the fair value of the broad range of transport related assets creates challenges. This repor
Actions for Mobile speed cameras
Key aspects of the state’s mobile speed camera program need to be improved to maximise road safety benefits, according to a report released today by the Auditor-General for New South Wales, Margaret Crawford. Mobile speed cameras are deployed in a limited number of locations with a small number of these being used frequently. This, along with decisions to limit the hours that mobile speed cameras operate, and to use multiple warning signs, have reduced
Actions for Signal failures on the metropolitan rail network
Between 2004 and 2006, the number of signalling failures, signalling downtime and the number of trains delayed as a result of signal failures all fell. RailCorp’s on-time running performance improved over the same period. The fall in failures is a clear indication of improved performance. Changes in the definition of on-time and to the timetable during 2005 and 2006 however make it difficult to determine whether improvements in response downtime and sign
Actions for Connecting with public transport
We see considerable potential for the Ministry of Transport to plan and manage interchanges more effectively, so as to make better use of our public transport network. We believe that the Ministry now needs to focus more on multi-modal transport planning and interchange performance. It needs to assign responsibility for the coordination and oversight of inter-modal operations to an entity resourced for the purpose. Without this it will continue to be ver
Actions for CBD and South East Light Rail – follow up audit
The CBD and South East Light Rail (CSELR) project is a light rail service that connects the Sydney CBD to Kingsford and Randwick. First passenger services commenced in December 2019. We conducted a performance audit of the CSELR project in 2016. This audit will assess whether Transport for NSW has effectively updated and consolidated information about project costs and benefits, and whether Transport for NSW has implemented the recommendations of the pre
Actions for Train station crowding
Increasing population puts pressure on the public transport system leading to increased crowding. Long-term responses are to increase network capacity, but in the short-term transport agencies must work within existing constraints to manage crowding to ensure a safe, reliable and comfortable journey for passengers. This audit will look at how effectively transport agencies manage crowding at train stations.
Actions for WestConnex
The WestConnex project is a motorway project that will link the M4 and M5 motorways with 33km of new motorway tunnels in Sydney. We conducted a performance audit of the WestConnex business case review process in 2014. Since then, the scope and projects included in WestConnex have changed. This audit will assess whether the responsible agencies effectively assessed and justified major scope changes to the WestConnex project. Contributions close 30 June
