Australian road track cost allocation

ARRB is currently undertaking research aimed at refining a national pay-as-you-go (PAYGO) road track cost allocation process. The research initially involved a review of several overseas road track cost allocation practices. All the practices reviewed use some form of cost-occasioned PAYGO road costing approach to fund their annual road track expenditure. The annual road user charges are based on assignment of the separable and non-separable road track costs. Using a common set of road track costs, a comparison between the overseas cost allocation methods showed a wide variation in the portion of the costs treated as separable. Future Australian cost allocation research should confirm the separable and non-separable road track cost portions, and provide a sound basis for separable cost allocation.
