DTMR - TNRP wins at 2015 CILTA Awards

DTMR’s Transport Network Reconstruction Program (TNRP) team has taken out another industry accolade, winning the 2015 Chartered Insitute of Logistics and Transport in Australia (CILTA) award for Excellence in Transport Policy, Planning and Implementation.

DTMR set up its TNRP to manage the recovery and reconstruction of Queensland’s integrated transport system arising from the damage from the series of signifiicant natural disaster events between 2010 and 2013. The transport system includes statecontrolled roads, ports, navigation aids and the rail network.

The CILTA Awards is an annual event celebrating the accomplishments of some of the finest passenger, freight and defence, transport and logistics companies in the world. The 2015 awards ceremony took place in Brisbane in November, with about 200 logistics and transport professionals attending.

The Transport Policy, Planning and Implementation Award recognised the TNRP’s innovative methods in planning and development, along with its outstanding implementation and overall outcomes.

TNRP was also a finalist in the Excellence in Government Innovation category of the awards.

General Manager (Program Delivery and Opera???? ons) Miles Vass said the CILTA awards highlighted the TNRP’s scope as the largest reconstruction program in Queensland’s history.

“With all districts affected by natural disasters, it was a significant achievement to coordinate program delivery partners across federal, state and local government agencies, and industry,” Mr Vass said.

“Application of best practice program management processes ensured the program achieved all objectives and was completed within funding deadlines and budget, met or exceeded stakeholder expectations, and led  a positive legacy of lessons learned upon completion. “Most importantly, the TNRP reinstated priority connections for the benefi t of the whole community.”

On completion of final works in June 2015, DTMR’s TNRP had spent more than $6.4 billion on the recovery and reconstruction of 8,741km roads across the State.
