National Land Transport Technology Action Plan

The Office of Future Transport Technology leads the Commonwealth's engagement on the National Land Transport Technology Action Plan and underpinning National Policy Framework, which sets out a nationally consistent approach to policy, regulatory and investment decision-making for emerging land transport technologies.

The Action Plan is updated every four years and outlines national short- to medium-term priorities, focusing on the five key issues for Government identified in the framework:

  1. Safety, Security and Privacy
  2. Digital and Physical Infrastructure
  3. Data
  4. Standards and Interoperability
  5. Disruption and Change.

Progress against the Action Plan's key priorities is reported annually. Reports from previous years can be accessed below:

In late 2023, public and industry consultation was undertaken on a new draft National Road Transport Technology Strategy and draft 2024-2027 National Connected and Automated Vehicle Action plan. Once approved, the new Strategy and 2024-2027 Action Plan will replace the current Policy Framework and its Action Plan.
