Government names NTC review team


The Federal Government names three-person team as part of a review into the NTC's future

Former Queensland Transport bureaucrat Bruce Wilson will chair a review into the National Transport Commission, as the Federal Government calls for submissions on the NTC’s future.

Wilson, who was last year appointed to lead the development of the Queensland Public Service Commission, worked for 12 years as the chief executive of Queensland Transport.

He will be joined by two other committee members as part of the three-person team responsible for examining the NTC’s effectiveness and its future in terms of policy and regulatory challenges.

Tania Whyte from Linfox and Adam Lewis from McKinsey & Company will assist Wilson on the panel, which will consult with the industry and representative organisations before making its findings.

"The review will provide recommendations on the future of the NTC, including possible amendments to the relevant legislation," Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Anthony Albanese says.

The recommendations will be presented to the Australian Transport Council in the middle of the year, which will then report to the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) in September.

"I would also encourage all those interested in the future of the NTC to make a submission," Albanese says.

Written submissions close March 6.
