VICT is a proud supporter and participant of the Victorian Department of Transport Voluntary Pricing Protocol and invites all parties to submit their questions and queries relating to the Infrastructure Charge to

In support with the recent findings done on our supplementary submission and associated recommendation for regulatory reform. This latest increase has been shared with the Productivity Commission as a part of their review of Australia's Maritime Systems.
