He is passionate and committed to serving South Australians through the provision of valuable social and economic infrastructure, and service delivery.

His diverse responsibilities include setting strategy and policy, implementing programs, projects, initiatives, service delivery, and driving improved performance.

Jon is the Rail Commissioner and Commissioner of Highways, with responsibility for ensuring well-connected and customer focused services are delivered safely, efficiently, and sustainably, and our road network is improved and maintained.

The Department is responsible for the delivery of $7.8 billion investment in transport infrastructure and $5.5 billion for social infrastructure projects, over the next four years.
