Visit to Newcastle

On Wednesday 24 October, I spent the day in Newcastle meeting people working on different projects in and around the area.

In the morning, I presented at the 2018 Regional Suppliers Conference. It was hosted by our Strategic Procurement team and is all about fostering strong partnerships with our suppliers.

I took the opportunity to spend time with one of our Engineering graduates, Lorenzo Sposito. Lorenzo is currently based in Newcastle working in Country Rail Contracts team.

After the conference, Lorenzo and I headed out to meet the Newcastle Light Rail team. I was really impressed by the progress they've made and it's a great example of how we're making better places for the community.

When the light rail opens to passengers early next year, it will completely change how people move around, providing connections to other modes, transforming the environment and bringing in a whole new era of confidence and investment in Newcastle.

Good to meet you all, thanks to everyone and well done on delivering a great outcome for our customers.

Check out some photos from the day.
