MARCH QUARTER 2022 UPDATE1

Transurban today released its March quarter 2022 update. During the period, Average Daily Traffic (ADT) increased by 0.4% compared to the March quarter 2021 and was 3.4% lower compared to the same period in 2019.2,3 See Appendix 1 and 2 for full traffic information for the March quarter.

The March quarter again demonstrated traffic recovery occurring in line with the progressive easing of government restrictions and increased economic activity.

Severe rainfall events occurred in late February to early March in Queensland and NSW, with traffic in those markets recovering quickly as weather patterns normalised. Traffic recovery is also continuing in Victoria with CityLink recording its highest monthly ADT since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2022.

Travel on Australian airport exposed assets improved over the quarter, in line with increasing domestic travel, with February and March traffic on these roads the highest it has been since March 2020.

Airport exposed assets include trips from Western Link, Eastern Distributor and AirportLinkM7

  • 1 All ADT % changes shown throughout are in relation to the respective prior corresponding period unless otherwise noted.

  • 2 2019 being the most recent comparable period not impacted by COVID-19.

  • 3 Excluding new assets M8/M5 East (which opened/commenced tolling on 5 July 2020) and NorthConnex (which opened on 31 October 2020),

Group ADT for the March 2022 quarter decreased by 9.4% compared to 2019.

In the Greater Washington Area, March traffic along the 95 Express Lanes was the highest since the start of the pandemic, supported by discretionary or holiday travel. In Montreal, traffic progressively improved throughout the period, with overall traffic up slightly for the quarter vs pre-pandemic levels, despite restrictions in place in January.

West Gate Tunnel Project update

In Melbourne, Transurban has entered into detailed documentation with the Victorian Government and the CPB John Holland Joint Venture on revised terms for delivery of the West Gate Tunnel Project.

Progress has continued on all three sections of the Project. The first Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) has excavated around 430 metres of the outbound tunnel, with the second TBM finalising commissioning. More than 70% of widening works on the West Gate Freeway are now complete and more than 650 metres of the new elevated roadway above Footscray Road has been built.

12 Transurban improved the calculation of ADT during the June 2020 quarter. Traffic measurement involves the correlation of images and tags from detected vehicles. Reporting improvements enabled faster removal of duplicate trips, for example, where multiple tags are detected in a vehicle. The change to the calculation resulted in reported ADT reducing for some assets, by a maximum of 1%. ADT for prior corresponding periods was restated for comparative purposes. This ADT reporting change had no impact on revenue.

13 2022 ADT figures for Queensland assets are calculated excluding the period between 08:00 on 2 March to 23:59 on 6 March. Tolling was suspended during this time due to extreme rainfall events.

  • 14 Proportion of large vehicle traffic as a percentage of total traffic for the March 2022 quarter.

  • 15 Average tolled trip length was 12.9 kilometres for the March 2022 quarter on Westlink M7.

  • 16 Average tolled trip length was 7.8 kilometres for the March 2022 quarter on M4. The New M4 Tunnels opened in July 2019.

  • 17 Average tolled trip length was 9.2 kilometres for the March 2022 quarter on M8/M5 East. Disclosed average tolled trip length is adjusted to reflect the adoption of equalisation factors from the concession agreement which are designed to make tolls consistent across the M8 and M5 East motorways despite having slightly different asset lengths.

18 Transurban's proportional ownership of WestConnex increased from 25.5% to 50% through its equity interest in Sydney Transport Partners (STP) from 29 October 2021.

  • 19 CityLink traffic reported as average daily transactions ('000).

  • 20 95 Express Lanes concession includes the 395 Express Lanes which opened in November 2019.

  • 21 Transurban's ownership of Transurban Chesapeake reduced from 100% to 50% from 1 April 2021.
