The Baird Government has secretly dumped two of its most senior transport officials from the Westconnex road project.
Tim Reardon, Secretary of Transport for NSW, and Peter Duncan, Chief Executive of the Roads and Maritime Services, have both left the Board responsible for the Westconnex.
The WestConnex Delivery Authority was formed in October 2013 and was charged with overseeing the construction, financing and management of what was originally forecast to be a $10 billion project.
Since then costs have blown out to more than $15 billion and the entire project has been the subject of a highly critical report by the Auditor-General.
Meanwhile, a rival entity, the Sydney Motorway Corporation, has taken over the job of delivering the project from Westconnex and Tim Reardon and Peter Duncan have been dumped from the board.
Quotes attributable to Shadow Minister for Roads Jodi McKay
“Purging two senior executives from the largest road building project in NSW is short sighted and irresponsible when there is billions of dollars at stake.”
“Surely the Government would want to keep two experienced transport executives on the ship, and not throw them over board.”
“The Government has failed to announce these departures, let alone explain them. This should ring alarm bells about the transparency and accountability of the Westconnex project.”
