The Hon. Jacinta Allan, Minister for Transport Infrastructure
Jacinta is currently the Minister for Transport Infrastructure and Minister for Suburban Rail Loop in the Andrews Labor Government. Jacinta is also the Leader of the House in the Victorian Parliament. Jacinta was elected to Parliament in 1999 and is the longest serving Victorian female Minister in the State’s history and Victoria’s longest serving Labor Minister. Throughout her career she has advocated strongly for Government investment that delivers for all Victorians, by creating jobs and delivering better health, education and transport services for communities.
As Minister for Transport Infrastructure, Jacinta is overseeing the delivery of the largest investment in transport projects in Victoria’s history including the removal of 75 of Melbourne’s most dangerous and congested level crossings, the construction of the Metro Tunnel, Melbourne Airport Rail and the Regional Rail Revival package, which will make improvements to every passenger line on the regional network. Jacinta is responsible for the delivery of Victoria’s major road projects including the West Gate Tunnel, North East Link and upgrades to key suburban and regional road networks. Jacinta is also Minister for Suburban Rail Loop and is responsible for the delivery of the state shaping Suburban Rail Loop project which will transform the way Victorians travel and connect to health, education and employment centres across Melbourne’s middle suburbs. As the biggest transport project in Victoria’s history, the Suburban Rail Loop will create a pipeline of investment renewal in key precincts, bringing services and jobs closer to communities and neighbourhoods.
As part of the Victorian Government’s response to the COVID-19 health emergency, Jacinta is currently a member of the Crisis Council of Cabinet serving as the Minister for the Coordination of Transport COVID-19. In this role, Jacinta has responsibility for leading all COVID-19 response activities across the transport portfolio.
