Former Brisbane transit CEO gets Olympics transport role

Brisbane transit authority Translink chief executive officer Peter Strachan has accepted a position with the UK government as Department for Transport director-general − responsible for major road and rail projects including the Olympics transportation arrangements.

Queensland transport minister Annastacia Palaszczuk thanked Strachan for his service to Queensland which will end in October 2011.

“It is a credit to Peter and a strong recognition of our public transport system that he has been appointed to such a senior role,” Palaszczuk said.

“He will have responsibility for major road and rail projects in the UK and public transport in London including transport for the 2012 London Olympics.”

The Queensland Government will now undertake a search for a replacement.
