About Us

Transurban Group


At Transurban we keep cities moving

For over 20 years, Transurban has been building, maintaining, enhancing, and operating roads that make a difference to how people connect and commute. From our first asset – Melbourne’s CityLink – to owning and operating 21 assets across Australia and North America, we continue to strengthen and grow.

But Transurban is more than a toll road company. The work we do makes a difference. 

Our ideas shape cities, boost economies and redefine landscapes. 80% of jobs are already located in cities, and congestion is set to cost tens of billions more in the next 20 years. So the decisions we make, strategies we set and the networks we design today will benefit our neighbours, friends and families tomorrow. 

Transurban is a Top 20 ASX listed organisation with a market cap of close to $40billion. We pride ourselves on how we marry together traditional infrastructure with emerging technology, engineering and customer solutions, while remaining true to our values. As a values-led organisation, we are committed to demonstrating integrity, collaboration, accountability, ingenuity, and respect in everything we do. It’s what our clients and communities expect of us and what we expect of ourselves. These values support us in the pursuit of our vision: To strengthen communities through transport.
