Transurban has ownership and management interests in toll road assets in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Greater Washington Area.
These assets include wholly owned subsidiaries as well as partnerships in which Transurban has a percentage of ownership. Assets that we own vary in whether Transurban has direct day-to-day operational control of the roadway or whether this role is filled by operations and maintenance contractors.
Transurban also makes significant use of contractors in the construction and upgrade phase of major projects. Construction projects are typically completed by a major contractor and then passed over to Transurban after completion.
Wherever possible, we have provided performance data from across all our assets and contractors, including data from construction and upgrade projects. Any omissions and exceptions to this scope have been stated in the relevant sections.
The assets, projects and development opportunities discussed in this report are:
Transurban’s Legacy Way tunnel in Queensland opened in late June 2015 and was not included in the scope of the previous FY15 Sustainability Report. It is included in annual data for the first time in the FY16 Report.
Transurban acquired the AirportLinkM7 motorway in Queensland, reaching financial close and taking over operations from April 2016. Environmental data from AirportLinkM7 will be included from the FY17 Sustainability report onwards.
Transurban took over operations of the Eastern Distributor and Cross City Tunnel in July, 2015. This is reflected in this Report by the inclusion of Scope 1 GHG emissions now that Transurban has operational control of contractor vehicles on these assets.
Construction for the CityLink Tulla Widening, NorthConnex Gateway Upgrade North projects were underway in FY16. Planning for the Western Distributor, Monash Freeway Upgrade, Logan Enhancement Project, Inner City Bypass, 395 Express Lanes and 95 Express Lanes extensions was advanced during FY16 but major works will not commence until FY17.
