The thesis contains six chapters, with this Introduction being the first.
The second describes the existing arrangements for transport funding which
apply to the State government in South Australia. All modes and both urban
and rural expenditure are included in the description. The accounts of
authorities and departments are such that it is difficult to dissect
expenditures and revenues for the parts considered in this thesis.
An estimate is made indicating that urban arterial roads and urban public
transport services account for approximately 50% of State government
transport expenditure.
The third chapter is a review of relevant literature. The pricing and
investment models are taken from the literature (with same modification)
and applied in Adelaide. The application of the models and the pricing
and service level results are described in Chapter 4. The input data to
the models are described in the four Appendices. The model results are
then translated into annual funding levels for roads and public transport
services. These funding levels are presented and compared with existing
expenditures and revenues in Chapter 5.
Finally, weaknesses in and qualifications to the data and model formulation
are discussed in Chapter 6.
