B25 Equity accounted investments (continued) Joint Ventures (continued) TC (50% ownership interest) Effective 31 March 2021, the Group has a 50% ownership interest in TC. The following entities are part of TC: • Transurban Chesapeake LLC; • Capital Beltway Express LLC (the operator of the Capital Beltway Express Lanes); and • 95 Express Lanes LLC (the operator of the 95 Express Lanes).

On 30 April 2022, TC and Branch-Flatiron Joint Venture (BFJV), the D&C Subcontractor on the Fredericksburg Extension project, reached agreement regarding claims related to certain geological soil conditions encountered during construction, including a new Scheduled Service Commencement Date of 15 December 2023. The total cost of the D&C Subcontract has increased by US$102 million ($150 million), of which US$30 million ($44 million) has been offset against provisional payments made previously to BFJV. The Group's proportional contribution to the adjustment to the D&C Subcontract price is included within Note B29. KEY ESTIMATE AND JUDGEMENT The Group’s assessment that it does not control TC has been made by considering the terms of the Purchase Agreement signed by the TC partners, which requires a supermajority vote of at least 77.5% of all shareholders for decisions on significant relevant activities. Considering this, and among other factors, the Group has concluded that it, together with the other TC partners, jointly controls TC and its controlled entities. AM Partners (60% ownership interest) The Group has a 60% ownership interest in AM Partners, whose role is to be the Maryland Department of Transport’s long-term partner to build, finance and operate new Express Lanes in Maryland, USA. Management have assessed that the Group does not control AM Partners considering the ownership and operating agreements, which require unanimous approval by all shareholders for all relevant decisions. Associate Bluedot (4.2% ownership interest) Bluedot is an advanced location services technology company. The Group leverages Bluedot’s location services technology for the Group’s LinktGo application which allows the use of a smartphone’s GPS and other sensors to identify when a driver has entered and exited a toll road. Bluedot’s technology continues to be used by the Group as at 30 June 2022. The carrying value of the Bluedot equity accounted investment is $nil (2021: $nil). Accordingly, summarised financial information, including cumulative losses not recognised, is not disclosed.
