About the Major Transport Infrastructure Authority

Victoria's Big Build is overseen by the Major Transport Infrastructure Authority (MTIA).

MTIA works closely with the Department of Transport in planning, delivery and construction of major transport projects.

The Department of Transport and MTIA ensure major construction activities and disruptions are coordinated across the transport network, including plans to keep people moving through major works periods.

The MTIA was established on 1 January 2019 to oversee major transport projects in Victoria. It is made up of 5 project teams:

Director-General Corey Hannett leads the MTIA, with governance and strategic oversight by the Major Transport Infrastructure Board.

MTIA staff have expertise in planning and delivering major transport projects in the fields of:

  • safety
  • resource planning
  • legal
  • commercial
  • community and stakeholder engagement
  • communications
  • policy
  • finance.

The MTIA works closely with the Department of Transport to ensure major construction activities and disruptions are coordinated across the network. This includes plans to keep people moving through major work periods. We also work with industry to ensure it has the skilled workers needed to deliver Victoria’s massive construction program.
