Roads Australia is deeply saddened by the passing of our former Board director and respected transport industry leader, Gary Liddle AO.
Gary served the transport industry for more than 40 years. In that time, he occupied senior leadership positions in the sector, including as Chief Executive of VicRoads, Deputy Secretary of the Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure (Vic), Chair of ARRB, Chair of Austroads, Chair of iMOVE and Chair of iRAP.
Gary’s passion for the transport sector and sharing his knowledge with the next generation was further reflected in his role as Enterprise Professor, Transport at the University of Melbourne.
In 2017, Gary was made an Officer in the Order of Australia (AO) for “distinguished service to public administration in the Victorian transport sector through leadership in policy direction, infrastructure development, road safety and regulatory reform.”
RA extends is deepest condolences to Gary’s wife Meredith, his family, friends and all Gary’s former colleagues across the industry.
