Queensland Transport and Main Roads remove Caltabiano and appoint Scales

Queensland Transport and Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson announced that Neil Scales OBE has accepted the offer to take up the appointment as the new Director-General, Department of Transport and Main Roads.

Mr Emerson said Neil had demonstrated over the past four months that he was the right person to lead the Department.

Governor in Council last week approved to terminate the employment contract of Michael Caltabiano as Director-General, Department of Transport and Main Roads.

“Neil has been acting DG since October 2012 and showed outstanding leadership during the recent floods as the Department worked to re-open roads, re-build bridges and re-connect communities quickly,” Mr Emerson said.

“He understands that the task has only just begun to deliver a significant recovery and resilience program across Queensland.

“Neil will also lead the implementation of Newman Government reforms, including a better public transport network, safer licensing, and the delivery of road and transport projects across Queensland.”

Matt Longland will remain as the acting Deputy Director General of TransLink.
