RA Farewell to Duncan Gay (Sydney)

06/03/2017 12:00 to 06/03/2017 14:30

Venue: SCG Noble Dining Room

Duncan Gay recently departed the NSW Ministry after six years in the roads and freight portfolio, on top of a nearly 30-year career in the Legislative Council.

His considerable legacy includes major motorway projects in Sydney like WestConnex and NorthConnex, the movement of freight from ‘paddock to port’, and key road safety initiatives.

Duncan has been a great friend to Roads Australia, with a reputation for 'telling it like it is'. This is an opportunity to farewell and thank Duncan as a true champion of roads and road transport in NSW.
