Big Build

Corey Hannett, the Director General of the Victorian Major Transport Infrastructure Authority will be leaving his position after eight years of leading the Big Build program. 

Since the election of the Victorian Labor Government in 2014, Mr Hannett has overseen an unprecedented construction blitz across the state.

Mr Hannett has led the Big Build as it grew from the removal of 50 level crossings to now 110 by 2030, the construction of the Metro Tunnel, and a $100 billion pipeline of transport projects across Victoria, employing more than 50,000 workers.

Victorian Premier, Daniel Andrews, said Mr Hannett has led the historic Big Build program of works that has transformed the state and created tens of thousands of jobs.

“Corey’s passion for the sustainability of the construction sector, and the safety of workers on the ground, have been hallmarks of his leadership and I thank him and wish him, and his family well for the future,” Mr Andrews said.

Deputy Victorian Premier and Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, Jacinta Allan, said since she first met Mr Hannett in December 2014, he has displayed a relentless drive for results that has been the cornerstone of the Big Build’s success.

“Corey has built an amazing team with a strong culture of performance, professionalism and safety that is the envy of other states,” Ms Allan said.

Mr Hannett will be replaced by the current CEO of the Level Crossing Removal Project, Kevin Devlin.

Mr Devlin has worked alongside Mr Hannett on the delivery of Victoria’s Big Build and is uniquely placed to ensure the ongoing success of the program.

Mr Devlin will start as Director General following Mr Hannett’s departure in late March 2023, allowing time for a seamless transition and the opportunity to move quickly to fill his role at the Level Crossing Removal project.

    50 railway lines being replaced has grown to 110.

    Bloody Andrews has finished the 50 worst, yet his replacing more, in Labor seats first.

    Bullshit.

      50 level crossings, now 110 level crossings being replaced. Not railway lines.

      That bloody Andrews is doing what he said he would, it’s a success and now he’s doing more. What a nightmare.

      He’s done the worst first… Unbelievable.

      Now he’s doing more in labor seats? Quicker and cheaper to start, deliver and complete a project somewhere majority of residents and local council are already in favor of it. Probably a good way to ensure success.

      Overall Victoria gets rid of 110 level crossings.. why is that a bad thing?

      Bullshit.
