Transurban (previously known as Go Via and now Linkt in Queensland) last week released its Hardship Pilot Outcomes report and has adopted recommendations to improve its hardship program. These improvements include the establishment of a new dedicated team to support people having payment difficulties; easier access to support; and earlier education and intervention. Transurban is currently implementing these improvements and it is expected that these will be up and running in early 2019.
