Victoria's infrastructure experts are backing a federal review that will examine user pays road pricing as a way of reducing congestion.

Despite the state government ruling it out almost two months ago, Infrastructure Victoria says putting price signals on road use is the best way to encourage people to use public transport and reduce congestion in cities.

"Just building infrastructure attracts more users until it's congested again, so we need to introduce demand management as part of the solution in tackling congestion," Infrastructure Victoria chief executive Michael Masson said in a statement on Friday.
