2021 CCF Road Sector Breakfast
Hosted by Lisa Kinross, GM Training & Operations, CCF Victoria. This event will feature the following guest speakers:
Paul Northey – Chief Regional Surface Transport, Department of Transport (DoT)
As Chief Regional Surface Transport, Paul leads the dedicated regional roads division of the Department of Transport, Regional Roads Victoria, as well as the regional bus and ferry contract management division.
With continued strong investment, RRV brings a coordinated, consistent and integrated approach to improving the regional road network through the prioritisation of an annual spend ($1.3B – 20/21 Victorian Budget). RRV is focused on the way regional roads are planned and maintained, looking at road upgrades, maintenance and safety, ensuring planning and investment is in the right areas and reflects the priorities of community, councils and industry.
A key part of the RRV division is Safer Roads, which partners with Transport Accident Commission to deliver safer roads infrastructure throughout Victoria. The TAC has committed $1.4 billion to the program from 2013 to 2023, with Safer Roads responsible for managing the projects. This program will transform Victoria’s highest risk roads into some of the state’s safest.
Paul joined RRV in September 2018 and has over 30 years experience in the government utility sector having held multiple previous senior management roles, predominantly in the areas of project and service delivery.
Paul’s academic qualifications are a Bachelor of Engineering (Civil), a Master of Engineering (Environmental) and a Master of Business Administration. He is a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, a Fellow of the Institute of Engineers Australia and is a member of the Deakin University Engineering Advisory Board.
Tony Aloisio – Project Director, Ecologiq
Ecologiq Director Tony Aloisio will delve into the Recycled First Policy which came into effect for all new contracts for major transport infrastructure projects in March 2020.
Tony will provide an overview of the policy’s objectives, profile a successful case study and interview a contractor about their experience implementing the Recycled First Policy.
He will also detail requirements contractors must meet during project tender and delivery phases to ensure recycled and reused Victorian materials are optimised
Ecologiq is a Victorian Government initiative which will optimise the use of recycled and reused materials, driven by transport projects and Victoria’s Big Build
The program is making the use of recycled and reused materials business as usual as it helps Victoria innovate and grow its domestic recycling capabilities, build local markets and find new uses for recycled content.
