#ISCACONNECT Platinum Sponsors: MTIA
WHO IS MAJOR TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE AUTHORITY?
The Major Transport Infrastructure Authority (MTIA) is responsible for facilitating the development and delivery of the biggest transport infrastructure program in Victorian history. As the state’s population continues to grow towards eight million by 2050, keeping people moving will require an extra 10 million journeys per day on Victoria’s transport network.
“We are proud Platinum sponsors of #ISCACONNECT Annual Conference and ISCA Awards. We believe it is important to bring together leading thinkers to discuss sustainable outcomes, enabling the delivery of a more sustainable future.”
Corey Hannett, Chief Executive Officer of MTIA, is the opening keynote speaker on day 2 of #ISCACONNECT and will be sharing an overview of some of the initiatives within the state’s plans for Victoria’s future transport network.
With billions being invested in 119 major road and rail projects across the state, MTIA’s role is to plan for Victoria’s future transport network needs now by:
- Building the Metro Tunnel to untangle the City Loop so more trains can run more often
- Removing 75 dangerous level crossings
- Upgrading every regional passenger train line in Victoria
- Creating an alternative to the West Gate Bridge with the West Gate Tunnel
- Building Victoria’s biggest road project, North East Link, to complete the missing link in our freeway network
- Upgrading some of Melbourne’s busiest freeways including the M80 and M1
- Upgrading priority roads in Melbourne’s outer west, north and south-eastern suburbs
- Developing an Airport Rail Link to connect the airport to all metropolitan and regional lines
- Planning for new electrified lines in the west and faster, high-capacity rail for regional cities.
MTIA recognises the responsibility associated with this once in a generation investment and importance of optimising environmental, social and economic outcomes for current and future generations of Victorians.
Our projects were among the first to adopt the ISCA rating scheme in Victoria and subsequently have gone on to deliver some of the nation’s most highly regarded achievements in sustainable public infrastructure, both nationally and internationally.
We are continuing to challenge ourselves, our project partners and other agencies to be at the leading edge of sustainability thinking.
