The growth of connected and autonomous vehicles is expected to be one of the most significant changes ever to occur in transport. Connected systems promise integrated, reliable, and safer travel, whilst autonomy could increase accessibility, reduce incidents, and increase national productivity.
Working with other government authorities, agencies, academia and industry, we have conducted multiple CAV trials on the SRN. This forms part of our preparations to ensure the SRN is able to accommodate vehicles with varying levels of connectivity and autonomy.
We are clearly defining our role in the safe deployment and operation of CAVs on the SRN and are actively factoring this into our long-term planning and investment decisions.
