We need to create a sustainable and resilient city that will serve us well into the future. Our Vision at LXRA is ‘Delivering Great Change – Transforming the way Victorians live, work and travel’. Change for the positive is at the heart of our work, be it local commuters, road users, rail commuters and within our organisation and industry.
