Chapter Six

In May 1995, Transurban was selected as the preferred bidder and, on 28 July, Tony Shepherd signed the contract between the Victorian Government and Transurban. The Melbourne City Link was Australia's largest infrastructure project since the Snowy Mountains Scheme and Australia's largest private tollway. The tolling was to be the biggest ever application of highway speed electronic tolling anywhere in the world, about 600,000 transactions per day. Transfield Services continues to maintain the roadway, including the electronic tolling and associated traffic management systems.
