Will AAPT boss, Paul Broad, run Infrastructure NSW? Media reports suggest he might.
The <i>Sun Herald</i> reported over the weekend that the NSW State Government has signed the former head of Sydney Water to the position of chief executive of Infrastructure NSW, the Barry O’Farrell-led government’s wonder body that will apparently solve the state’s multiple woes and get it back on its feet.
The paper also reported Broad will be joined on the board of Infrastructure NSW by former Howard government advisor, Max Moore-Wilton, and the already-announced chair, former Liberal Premier, Nick Greiner.
Add a handful of public servants and some top business men and Infrastructure NSW looks like one heavy entity.
How good will it be, particularly when a range of heavyweights have come and gone in the never-ending battle to reinvent NSW over the past few years?
That's hard to answer. Big names don’t necessarily mean big success but one thing's for certain, Infrastructure NSW certainly has the players on board if the Sun Herald report is right.
And, apparently, this line-up only has six months to come up with a 20-year master plan. Good luck.
