ABC (Australia) - - CONTENTS -

Trans­port for NSW (TfNSW) chief ex­ec­u­tive of State Tran­sit Peter Row­ley will leave the po­si­tion, it has been an­nounced.

Row­ley has had more than 40 years with State Tran­sit, start­ing work as a clerk in 1976. He has held a num­ber of se­nior roles over those years and played a key part in co­or­di­na­tion of buses for the Syd­ney Olympics. Row­ley has been chief ex­ec­u­tive since 2008, and leaves the or­gan­i­sa­tion with solid record of per­for­mance for punc­tu­al­ity and safety.

“Peter re­cently kicked off a ma­jor re­form of State Tran­sit de­signed to stream­line back of­fice func­tions, and re­fo­cus the or­gan­i­sa­tion on de­liv­er­ing the best ser­vices for its cus­tomers,” TfNSW sec­re­tary Tim Rear­don says. “We thank Peter for his ded­i­ca­tion to the de­liv­ery of safe and re­li­able bus ser­vices for cus­tomers.”

The role of chief ex­ec­u­tive will be filled in the in­terim by Lind­say Lee while a re­cruit­ment process for a new chief ex­ec­u­tive is un­der­taken.

In re­lated news, New South Wales Min­is­ter for Trans­port An­drew Con­stance will stay on in the trans­port port­fo­lio fol­low­ing Mike Baird’s res­ig­na­tion and Gla­dys Bere­jik­lian be­com­ing Pre­mier last month. BusNSW wel­comed the news. NSW Pre­mier Gla­dys Bere­jik­lian and Deputy Pre­mier John Bar­i­laro an­nounced a fresh team that they say will en­sure ev­ery com­mu­nity gets its fair share.

“Our new team will work hard to make life eas­ier for peo­ple right across NSW,” Bere­jik­lian says.

There are seven new faces in cabi­net, in­clud­ing four Lib­er­als and three Na­tion­als. Bar­i­laro says the new Na­tion­als min­is­ters would bring a fresh ap­proach and en­ergy to an al­ready ex­pe­ri­enced min­istry.

“As part­ners in the NSW Coali­tion Gov­ern­ment, it is the job of my cabi­net min­is­ters to en­sure that the peo­ple of re­gional NSW get their fair share of ser­vices and in­fra­struc­ture and we are de­ter­mined to de­liver for them,” he says.

Bere­jik­lian says the new team will make sure each com­mu­nity across the state re­ceives the ser­vices and in­fra­struc­ture it needs. For the first time, there will be a ded­i­cated Min­is­ter for Aus­tralia’s largest in­fra­struc­ture project, WestCon­nex.

Bar­i­laro will take on the role of min­is­ter for re­gional NSW, along with the skills and small busi­ness port­fo­lios. The new lead­er­ship thanked out­go­ing min­is­ters Adrian Pic­coli, Jil­lian Skin­ner, Dun­can Gay, John Ajaka and Les­lie Wil­liams for their ser­vice to NSW.
