Among the highlights will be presentations by Regional Rail Link Authority CEO Corey Hannett and Transcity joint venture (BMD Constructions, Ghella and Acciona) former project director Fernando Fajardo on the multi-billion dollar Regional Rail Link and Legacy Way tunnel projects.

Hannett will give attendees some insight into the scope of Victoria’s $5 billion Regional Rail Link and will discuss the technical way of thinking used by the project team to deliver the landmark piece of infrastructure, which has been described as the “untangling” of Melbourne’s rail system.

Over on the Legacy Way tunnel, Fajardo will discuss the project’s special features and the latest innovations used onsite to complete the 4.6km twin road tunnels, which by next year are set to almost halve peak-hour travel times for Brisbane motorists near the city’s CBD.

The conference will also see industry speakers give attendees tips on how to effectively work with government to leverage the maximum opportunities available from the multi-billion dollar infrastructure projects pipeline announced earlier this year.

These opportunities will also be discussed by government members, with federal infrastructure and regional development assistant minister Jamie Briggs and South Australian Transport and Infrastructure Minister Stephen Mullighan expected to speak at the conference.

The conference will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre on October 23-25 and will include a number of networking opportunities and social events, including the official conference dinner at the Adelaide Oval, a cocktail party in the Bamboo Forest at the Adelaide Zoo and the national Earth Awards gala dinner.
