It reads as though the powers that be within TMR don't already have people that:  "lead and manage teams undertaking rail planning across the state, ensuring that all planning is undertaken in a multi-modal, integrated, affordable and value for money context."

The ad shows the concentration of power in TMR when it comes to rail matters, and maybe their lack of expertise in the rail area.

They don't, based on the evidence of rail fail, NGR fail, RPL fail, cattle rail fail and DDA fail !   :P

I'm confused.

It's just for ~ 6 months. Bizzare for a position at that level.

Ha ha, put in a spam application listing a whole heap of QLD failures, see if it gets to interview.

"Oversaw Kippa-Ring line signal failure, and associated cost blowout"

etc...

Job applications aren't meant to be that long, are they?
Do I really need to clarify?
Sarcasm and rhetorical questions don't translate perfectly into written form, do they?

It is starting to smell like a patsy job. "The whole thing fell in a heap.  Unfortunately, the guy we hired recently to sort things out didn't do a good job.  We fired him.  It had nothing to do with us, just him.  And now he is gone."
