Event Details


Our March Presentation is on Inland Rail presented by Simon Thomas Programme Delivery Director ARTC

Mr Simon Thomas is the Programme Director for the Inland Rail Programme at the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC). In this role Mr Thomas is responsible for leading the project team and overseeing the delivery of the Programme’s construction elements.

Mr Thomas has over 28 years of major infrastructure project experience and has successfully delivered projects on time, to budget for major contractors and consultants within UK, Asia, Middle East & Australia. His previous roles include Project Director of Aurizon’s $904m Wiggins Island Rail Project, which is one of Australia’s largest rail infrastructure projects linking the new Coal Export Terminal in Gladstone with over 70km of new rail infrastructure.

During his time at Aurizon, in 2014 Mr Thomas was awarded Project Director High Commendation by the Australian Institute of Project Management for his work on the project. As national leaders in freight rail and the transport and logistics industry, ARTC are trusted by the future users of Inland Rail to deliver this nationally significant project.

Simon will provide an update on the progress of Inland Rail, a project of national significance which completes the spine of Australia’s freight rail network, linking cities, farms, mines and ports with a world class rail system with a focus on the economic benefits that the programme will bring to Australia nationally and specifically to Queensland.

Specific regard will be given to engineering, environmental approvals and construction progress. The presentation will also give a 2 year look ahead of work on this nation building icon project.
