Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Rob Mason, Chief Executive of NSW Trains, will step down from the organisation after a long career in the rail sector, including the last three-and-a-half years as the first CEO of NSW Trains.
Following an 18-year career in senior roles in the London Underground, Mason joined RailCorp in 2005 as Group General Manager of Train Services, and was CEO from 2008 to 2013.
Secretary of Transport for NSW, Tim Reardon, thanked Mason for serving the people of NSW for more than a decade. “Over the last three-and-a-half years, Rob has successfully established NSW Trains as a customer-focused organisation, delivering improvements to customer service, increasing patronage on intercity services and reconnecting the organisation with the regional and rural communities it serves,” he said. “Rob has made a significant contribution to transport in this state and I wish him well for the future.”
Reardon said that Sydney Trains CEO Howard Collins has been asked to take on the additional role of Acting Chief Executive of NSW Trains to help retain the successful structure and separate operations of Sydney Trains and NSW TrainLink. The announcement today will simply change the executive reporting lines to focus accountability for delivering the NSW Government’s More Train, More Services program over the short term, he explained.
“More than $1.5 billion will be invested over the next three years on the More Trains, More Services program, which will boost capacity through hundreds of extra services, better infrastructure and new trains,” Reardon added. “With such incredible customer growth, more than ever, the successful delivery of the Government’s massive investment to improve the rail network, which includes a new timetable to be implemented later this year, will require Sydney Trains and NSW Trains to continue to work together in a coordinated way.”
Peter Allaway, the current Executive Director of Customer Service Delivery, will be appointed as Chief Operating Officer and take responsibility for day-to-day management of NSW Trains, reporting directly to Collins.
