Monthly lunch Wednesday 19 April 2017
The April lunch was well attended and lively. The topic, Upgrading and Expanding Melbourne’s Rail Services, generated considerable interest amongst supporters of the John Cain Foundation. Evan Tattersall, CEO Melbourne Metro Rail Authority, presented a comprehensive overview of the new rail service – Melbourne’s largest infrastructure project in many years. The audience engaged the speaker in a lively discussion of all aspects of the project, from engineering and design issues to the politics inevitable in the implementation of such a large project.
