NSW's main transport agency has begun a major reshuffle of its senior ranks by spilling dozens of positions as it enters the final stages of folding Roads and Maritime Services into its new divisions and dissolving the standalone roads agency.
The impact of the reorganisation is rippling through agencies under the control of Transport for NSW, including Sydney Trains, whose chief executive Howard Collins will be seconded to a role overseeing "integrated transport services" for Greater Sydney.
Internal documents obtained by the Herald show the "proposed top-level structure" for each of the seven divisions within the enlarged Transport for NSW has resulted in at least 25 top-level management roles being spilled.

The roles of many executive-level managers have disappeared and their names are absent from the proposed structures for each of Transport for NSW's divisions. It means they will have to try their hand at applying for vacancies in the rejigged executive teams.
The shake-up follows the Berejiklian government's post-election decision to fold Roads and Maritime Services' functions and staff into Transport for NSW, which is headed by Rodd Staples, the architect of Sydney's new metro rail lines.
One of the divisions, Greater Sydney, is tasked with developing "integrated transport services" and to "be the face of transport" for NSW. Mr Collins will begin the role of Greater Sydney's chief operations officer on February 3.

Mr Collins, a former head of the London Underground, has had one of the highest-profile roles in NSW's transport bureaucracy since he took charge of Sydney's rail network in 2013.
Stewart Mills, a fellow veteran of London's Underground who heads Sydney Trains' engineering and maintenance, is considered a likely replacement for Mr Collins, although a decision is yet to be made.
The proposed top-level structure for the Regional and Outer Metropolitan division, which has oversight of NSW TrainLink, shows it has five senior positions that will need to be filled.
