NSW Minister for Roads and Ports, Duncan Gay has announced the new Roads and Maritime Services will start operating on 1 November this year.

Mr Gay said after an extensive recruitment process, he was delighted to announce that Peter Duncan, currently Deputy Director General of the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet, will be the new Chief Executive of the Roads and Maritime Services.

'Mr Duncan brings with him a wealth of knowledge and senior experience in NSW Government roles,' Mr Gay said.
'Mr Duncan has held a range of senior positions in the NSW Government, including previous roles as the Director General of the Department of Services, Technology and Administration, Chief Executive of Forests NSW and Deputy Director General of the Department of Primary Industries,' he said.

'He also spent the early years on his career in road design for the Department of Main Roads and Roads and Traffic Authority – giving him a strong insight into the functions and requirements of the roads agency at a grass roots level.
'Mr Duncan has an extremely impressive background and record of achievement in Government and we are delighted he has been appointed to the position.'

Mr Duncan will take on his new role from October 31st, following the proclamation of legislation on 1 November which will formally create Roads and Maritime Services.

'Roads and Maritime Services will operate under a service delivery contract to the new integrated transport authority, Transport for NSW,' Mr Gay said.

Mr Gay said he would like to pay tribute to outgoing Chief Executive Michael Bushby for his great dedication in leading the RTA for the past two and a half years and his 13 years at the organisation.

'I would like to congratulate Michael Bushby for his service to the people of NSW and wish him well for the future,' Mr Gay said. Mr Bushby will step down on 27 October.
