The public servant in charge of Victoria’s transport operations has resigned after less than a year in the role.

The Victorian Department of Transport’s head of transport services Jeroen Weimar was appointed to the position last July, when Public Transport Victoria (PTV) and VicRoads merged with the department.

Prior to that, Weimar was CEO of PTV for more than five years.

Over in the United Kingdom, he held roles at the British Transport Police Authority, the Greater London Authority, and KPMG. He also worked at Transport for London for more than nine years.

Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan thanked Weimar for his “incredible leadership and support”.

“Jeroen has led the way as we continue to build a more accessible and inclusive network and keep people moving as we get on with our big build,” she wrote in a tweet.

Weimar’s replacement has not yet been announced.
