Andrew Constance has served as the Member for Bega in the New South Wales Parliament since 2003.
He was sworn in as Minister for Transport and Infrastructure in the Baird Government in 2015. In March 2019 Premier Gladys Berejiklian expanded his portfolio to include Transport and Roads. Andrew was also named Leader of the House.
As Minister, Andrew is overseeing a record $55.6 billion spend on public transport and roads over the next four years, on top of the $58.3 billion the NSW Liberals & Nationals has already spent on public transport since winning Government in 2011.
The New South Wales’ transport and infrastructure revolution is well underway with the opening of mega projects such as the Sydney CBD and South East Light Rail, the new M4 Tunnels and the driverless Northwest Metro train in 2019.
Other game-changing projects, including the opening of the new major motorwaysknown as Northconnex and Westconnex, are just around the corner.
Progress is well underway on the next stage of the driverless Metro train through Sydney’s CBD and South West, which will include the first rail tunnel under Sydney Harbour.
Transport of the future is a key interest of Andrew’s and he is excited about combining technology, innovation and transport. He believes customer experience should be at the centre of all transport, and overseeing both Roads and Transport portfolios means he has an unprecedented opportunity to design and build an integrated network of roads and public transport.
This, combined with evolving transport technologies including contactless payments, autonomous and electric vehicles and on-demand transport will provide more reliable, comfortable and efficient options for customers now and into the future.
