Media Release 8 October 2008

Queensland:  CEO of the TransLink Transit Authority, Welcome!

RAIL Back On Track (http://backontrack.org) a web based community support group for rail and public transport and an advocate for public transport commuters has welcomed today's announcement by Transport Minister John Mickel of the appointment of Mr Peter Strachan as CEO of the TransLink Transit Authority.

Robert Dow, Spokesman for RAIL Back On Track said:

"It is a critical time for public transport in Queensland.  The appointment of Mr Peter Strachan as CEO of the TTA is welcomed by  RAIL Back On Track.  We have been concerned with the delay, but we are delighted to note the extensive rail and public transport background of Mr Strachan.  This we believe augers well for future public transport implementation and integration in Queensland."

"It is clear that rail public transport did go through a period where there was little proactive resourcing.  We are now seeing this turned around.  The formation of the TTA and now the appointment of a CEO with an extensive public transport background particularly in rail transport, we believe, clearly signifies a renewed emphasis on  light and heavy rail, the sustainable mass transit solution for the long haul."

"Rail will give the bulk capacity that is now needed more than ever."

"Welcome to Queensland Mr Strachan!"
