Sir Brian Roche to head NZTA
Sir Brian Roche will step up as the Chair of the NZ Transport Agency, it has been announced.
Roche’s appointment will cover a three-year term, which has already commenced.
Transport Minister, Phil Twyford, said Sir Brian Roche is an experienced director with an extensive track record in both the public and private sector.
“He brings a wealth of experience and a steady hand to transport sector governance, having previously chaired the Transport Agency and the Auckland Regional Transport Agency and is currently the chair of City Rail Link Limited.” Let’s forget about the fact that this project is already $1billion over budget.
“The Transport Agency has a crucial role to play in creating a modern and sustainable transport network and I’m pleased to appoint someone of Sir Brian’s calibre to lead this work.
“There is currently a review of the Transport Agency’s regulatory functions underway, which the Government expects to receive shortly. A key focus for Sir Brian will be implementing the direction signalled from that review, and I am confident in Sir Brian’s ability to make that happen.”
