From the above, it seems Transurban are still being significantly interrupted by the constant lockdowns being faced in Australia. Traffic Volumes in Sydney and Brisbane have nearly returned to Pre-Covid levels, whilst, Melbourne and North American traffic volumes have been significantly more affected. The group expects traffic volumes to rebound quickly once, lockdowns are lifted.

However, with the M8 and NorthConnex Tunnels now being opened and a strong balance sheet, this should position ASX:TCL for strong growth into the future.

Transurban Earnings Report: Prophet’s Take

TCL; Australia’s leading toll road operator has in our opinion provided decent results given the difficulties and uncertainties the business continues to face.

Whilst the risk isn’t worth the return in our opinion to hold directly in our portfolio, we are happy holding this stock as part of our VAS ETF.

Transurban continues to pay a dividend even in challenging times which is merit to its strong balance sheet, however, the company does have very complex debt facilities in which it uses to fund a lot of their project.

TCL is well-capitalized and has continued to grow its balance sheet. Future results will likely be dependant on the continued recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
