About the Major Transport Infrastructure Authority
Victoria's Big Build is overseen by the Major Transport Infrastructure Authority (MTIA) and the Suburban Rail Loop Authority (SRLA).
MTIA and SRLA work closely with the Department of Transport and Planning (DTP) in planning, delivery and construction of major transport projects.
We ensure major construction activities and disruptions are coordinated across the transport network, including planning 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 3 project teams:
- Level Crossing Removal Project
- Major Road Projects Victoria (incorporating Big Build Roads, West Gate Tunnel Project and North East Link)
- Rail Projects Victoria.
Director-General Kevin Devlin 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:
- resource planning
- community and stakeholder engagement
The MTIA works closely with DTP 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.
