Changes to the Department
Portfolio Strategic Projects Office established
The Portfolio Strategic Projects Office was established on 1 July 2018 to facilitate stronger collaboration between DoT, PTA and Main Roads on targeted, strategic priorities selected by the Transport Portfolio Governance Council.
Managing Director role established
On 1 July 2018, DoTís Policy Planning and Investment and Transport Services divisions were brought together under a newly established Managing Director role as part of an agency-wide realignment.
The establishment of a single Managing Director for DoT with oversight of all policy, planning, investment and operational directorates and business units ensures a holistic approach to the planning and delivery of transport solutions. The change, endorsed by the Transport Portfolio Governance Council, also brought DoTís structure in line with PTA and Main Roads, enhancing collaboration between the Portfolio partners.
New Freight Ports Aviation & Reform and Urban Mobility Directorates established
Two new directorates Ė Freight, Ports, Aviation and Reform and Urban Mobility Ė came into effect on 1 March 2019.
The new directorates, established as part of DoTís agency-wide realignment, brought together the former Freight and Ports, Integrated Transport Planning, and Transport Strategy and Reform directorates and reflect the way in which DoTís specialised teams of policy, planning and behaviour change professionals have evolved in recent years.
The directorates continue to work with internal and external stakeholders to ensure the safe and efficient movement of people and freight.
