Victorian government appoints bosses for rail priority projects

Chief executives have been appointed to the new Melbourne Metro Rail Authority and Level Crossing Removal Authority, agencies that will lead two of the major priorities for the new Victorian government.

The Victorian government has appointed heads of the agencies charged with delivering two of its biggest election promises.

Evan Tattersall has been appointed CEO of the Melbourne Metro Rail Authority and Kevin Devlin the CEO of the Level Crossing Removal Authority.

The creation of the Melbourne Metro Rail Authority and Level Crossing Removal Authority was announced in February, with $40 million “fast-tracked” to the former and $100 million to the latter.

According to the government, both CEOs have “decades of experience in the construction industry in the public and private sectors”.
