Warren Truss is getting another term at the helm of the ARTC.
The federal government has reappointed former deputy PM Warren Truss as chair of the Australian Rail Track Corporation.
Current deputy PM and minister for infrastructure Michael McCormack, said Mr Truss’s wealth of knowledge in governance, freight and regional Australia continued to make him a valuable asset to the ARTC Board.
“As a former deputy Prime Minister, Mr Truss has been a driving force in the delivery of significant Australian Government infrastructure investments, including the early funding for Inland Rail,” McCormack said.
“In his role as Infrastructure and Transport Minister, Mr Truss had a vision for regional rail and an acute understanding of the needs of regional communities, it is this vision and leadership that he brings to his role with the ARTC.
“Under Mr Truss’s leadership, ARTC continues to support critical supply chain services, having navigated the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Finance minister Simon Birmingham said Mr Truss’s continued leadership would be essential as Inland Rail transitioned from planning and design to construction.
“Under Mr Truss’s leadership ARTC will be well positioned to deliver this world class infrastructure through continuity in overseeing the operation of Australia’s critical freight rail network,” Minister Birmingham said.
