conference theme is exploring the options to move towards improved
pricing and the role of electronic road pricing (ERP), which are topical
subjects around the world.
Electronic Road Pricing
is receiving considerable attention at policy level, not just in the
Asia-Pacific region, but internationally. Many of the ingredients necessary
to facilitate the introduction of ERP and, more generally road pricing,
are already present. Governments want to increase revenue, and planners
and communities want to reduce traffic congestion and improve the environment.
Advances in technology make ERP feasible, affordable and not necessarily
invasive of privacy. (Sayeg & Bray 1999)
