Alan Tudge, Minister for Population, Cities and Urban Infrastructure, has announced that the federal government has appointed Erin Flaherty as the Chair of the Moorebank Intermodal Company (MIC) board.
Flaherty will serve a three-year term and takes over from Kerry Schott as the head of the board for the company which is overseeing the construction of the intermodal terminal in south-west Sydney.
Flaherty has served on the boards of other transport projects, including for one year as a board member for Sydney Metro and five years as an advisory board member for the North West Rail project.
Coming to the MIC, Flaherty also brings her experience as the executive director of Infrastructure New South Wales and advisory board member for Sydney Light Rail.
Ultimately, the MIC is the Commonwealth entity responsible for facilitating the precinct’s development, which will be developed by the Sydney intermodal Terminal Alliance (SIMTA), owned by Qube Holdings.
Flaherty joined the MIC when she was appointed as a non-executive director in March 2019. This coincided with the transition from the construction to operational phase.
Once completed, the 243ha site will include 850,000sqm of warehousing fed by a non-stop shuttle between Moorebank and Port Botany. A rail terminal will connect the intermodal terminal with rail networks across NSW and around the country.
