The Roads Australia Annual Lunch season is well and truly underway, kicking off in Hobart and Sydney at the end of November and continuing through to Adelaide on December 13.
Infrastructure Minister Rene Hidding was a welcome guest at the pitt&sherry-sponsored Hobart Annual lunch, attended by nearly 60 of the State’s infrastructure leaders.
Sponsored by Aurecon, this year’s Sydney lunch was a huge event, with our attendance again smashing through the 300 ceiling. Transport and Infrastructure Minister, Andrew Constance, had a strong and positive message about the transport infrastructure pipeline in NSW, underlined by the $20 billion-plus investment in this year’s State Budget.
Our Sydney lunch also saw the presentation to the winner of the 2017 RA Technical Excellence Award – Aurecon’s John Hilton, recognised for his landmark and career-long dedication to bridge design.
In Melbourne, we hosted 260 industry leaders including Roads, Road Safety and Ports Minister, Luke Donnellan, who also reflected on the strong pipeline of work currently being rolled out across the State. Our thanks to Laing O’Rourke for sponsoring this fantastic end-of-year event.
There are still seats and tables available for our final four lunches in Brisbane (Tuesday December 6, sponsored by Transurban), Perth (Thursday December 8, sponsored by GHD), Adelaide (December 13, sponsored by Aurecon) and Darwin (December 15, sponsored by BMD Constructions).
