New Cabinet to deliver agenda

Premier Daniel Andrews has unveiled a new Cabinet to deliver the Victorian Government’s agenda for the next four years.

Jacinta Allan will lead the Victorian Government’s transport portfolio as Minister for Transport Infrastructure, ensuring the biggest infrastructure program ever embarked upon in Victoria is delivered. 

Minister Allan will oversee Victoria’s current and upcoming infrastructure projects, including the Level Crossing Removal Program, North East Link, West Gate Tunnel and Metro Tunnel. 

Jaala Pulford is the new Minister for Roads, Road Safety and the Transport Accident Commission (TAC), and Minister for Fishing and Boating. 

Melissa Horne is the Minister for Public Transport and Ports and Freight.

To support these portfolios there were some machinery of government changes, effective from 1 January 2019.

The Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources (DEDJTR) transitioned to two new departments - the Department of Transport (DoT) and Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR).
