Reports commissioned in 2009 by the National Transport Modelling Working Group (NTMWG) critically reviewed the current status of the modelling tools available through each of the government agencies in relation to the various models' capability in each capital city. The work identified a number of enhancements for measuring the potential impacts of demand management approaches on road outcomes such as urban congestion. The NTMWG comprises members from each of the government agencies with ownership of the transport models for the respective capital cities; the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government; and the Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics.
