New jobs welcome boost for Grafton

FOUR positions have been created by the Roads and Maritime Service in Grafton to help deliver the state's biggest roads infrastructure program.

The positions include a project support engineer, project manager/engineer, contract officer and surveillance officer.

Clarence MP Chris Gulaptis said the jobs were a welcome boost.

"This is a fabulous opportunity for suitably qualified people in the local community, or those wishing to relocate to the Northern Rivers, to play a role in delivering significant infrastructure projects," Mr Gulaptis said.

"In the next five years about $16 billion will be invested in road upgrades alone and going out to tender with around 85 projects," he said.

"A workload of this size require a suitable work force to ensure projects are delivered on time, within budget and resources are used efficiently."

The RMS has established a Freight and Regional Program office, with a regional office in Grafton, as well as Parkes, Newcastle, Wollongong, Wagga Wagga and Dubbo.
