This is a unique opportunity to hear from the leader of one of the main government agencies in NSW and a primary deliverer of engineering across the state.


Peter Duncan is Chief Executive of Roads and Maritime Services which was established in 2011 as a delivery agency within the Transport cluster under Transport for NSW. Its primary role is to build, manage and maintain the state road and waterway network.

The RMS and its predecessors, the RTA and DMR have had a long relationship with the University, sponsoring numerous scholarships and employing many graduates who have gone on to become leaders in government and industry.

In 1968, The Department of Main Roads was a founding member of the Civil Engineering Foundation and together with the RTA have been long-term supporters of the School.

The RMS manages over more than 18,000km of State Roads including more than 4000km of National Land Transport Network, around 3000km of regional and local roads in the unincorporated area of NSW together with 5544 bridges and 26 road tunnels. It also manages 44 commuter wharves and more than 26,000 moorings in its 32,424km² of navigable waterways.

As Chief Executive, Peter Duncan, provides the strategic direction and leadership of all the RMS operations across the agency.
