Corey Hannett

Victoria’s Director-General

Major Transport Infrastructure Authority (MTIA)

Corey has been Victoria’s Director-General overseeing its massive pipeline of transport infrastructure projects since 2014.

As head of MTIA, he is responsible for the delivery of some of Australia’s largest transport projects, including the North East Link road tunnel, Metro rail tunnel, West Gate road tunnel, and the removal of 85 of Melbourne’s most dangerous and congested level crossings.

As well as these mega-projects, MTIA is upgrading every regional passenger line in Victoria, planning for a rail link to Melbourne Airport, planning for fast rail to Geelong and upgrading roads across suburban and regional Victoria.

Corey’s portfolio of projects currently under construction, or in planning, is $80 billion.

Corey is a driven and motivated leader, with more than 25 years’ experience in construction including 16 years in the public sector. He was previously Chief Executive of the Regional Rail Link Authority which delivered the largest rail project in Victoria for almost a century, and earlier in his career worked with Boral Resources and Baulderstone Hornibrook on large‐scale road projects.
