Infrastructure Australia Chair Julieanne Alroe said on the appointment. “Romilly joins Infrastructure Australia at an incredibly important time for our organisation, and we are delighted to have her on board as we prepare to release the Australian Infrastructure Audit in mid-2019 and begin work on the next Australian Infrastructure Plan.”
Infrastructure Australia was established by the previous Labor government to prepare priority lists of major infrastructure projects and reforms that will best serve the community.
“I look forward to growing the organisation’s focus on delivering better outcomes for individual users across transport, energy, telecommunications, water and social infrastructure,” Madew said.
She will begin her new role in April 2019.
