Our projects are being delivered in every corner of the area now known as Victoria – through the lands of the Gunaikurnai nations in the east, Wurundjeri and Bunurong country around Naarm, Wadawurrung and Eastern Maar lands in the west, and right up to lands of the Yorta Yorta, Latji Latji and Ngintait across the north.
Wherever we are working, we recognise we are visitors. While our projects will come and go, the connection of Traditional Owners and First Nations people to land, water and community continues.
During NAIDOC week we acknowledge and celebrate the contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to our organisation, and to building a better rail network for all Victorians.
The profiles contained in this book are a small insight into this contribution. They are stories of strength, skill and resilience that remind us of both how far we have come, and how far we have to go, in creating a culturally safe and equal industry and community.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, we highlight some of the awesome women delivering our projects, including the Metro Tunnel, Regional Rail Revival and Melbourne Airport Rail.
Read these profiles to learn more about their career journey, insights and how their contribution has made a vital impact on infrastructure in Victoria.
To celebrate Global Day of the Engineer 2021, we profiled some of the world-class talent we have working at Rail Project Victoria.
