Transport reform, technological change and equity - allies or enemies?

The improvement of the efficiency of our economy through transport reform is a worthwhile objective for the general community, but can be a slow process. On the other hand, advantages obtained through technological change can often be reaped relatively swiftly. The benefits of these processes, when considered from the perspective of the total economy, or when calculated within the confines of the one enterprise, may be large. However, the changes that occur during the processes of transport reform and technological change may have severe adverse impacts on others. This raises the question of the need for some balance between overall benefit and local equity. This paper explores that balance in general, and in the particular context of the Central Industrial Area of Sydney where Sydney airport and Port Botany are located.
