Engineers Australia Industry Fellows Luncheon
Fixing Infrastructure Victoria: A Case for Change
At the Industry Fellows Luncheon on the 19th of September, we continued the debate on how engineers can take a lead role to address Victoria’s infrastructure challenges.
We brought together an expert panel of Tom Fricke FIEAust CPEng, Committee for Melbourne, James Macneil, Consult Australia and Andrew Young, Property Council Australia, and Professor John Wilson FIEAust CPEng, Executive Dean of Engineering, Swinburne University and Spokesperson for Engineers Australia’s Victorian Infrastructure Report Card, who facilitated the panel discussion.
‘We believe Infrastructure Victoria is a good step forward. It’s not the total answer, but we believe it will help in this whole procurement of long term infrastructure for the benefit of all of us’.
