Meet our Project Delivery Engineer, Steve Jumaily, who is working across the three projects between Albury and Parkes.
Tell us a bit about your professional background
I am a professional civil structural engineer with over eight years of experience in design, maintenance and project delivery within rail transport and residential construction in Australia and overseas. I’ve worked with various rail operators in NSW and Victoria and been involved in projects from concept to completion, as well as overseeing routine maintenance, inspection and investigation works to ensure safety and reliability.
Why did you decide to join Inland Rail?
I am fortunate to be part of a once-in-a-generation project that will complete the backbone of the freight network and leave a legacy for Australia. It is definitely a career advancing project.
How is the project coming along?
All three southern NSW projects are progressing well in the reference design stage and environmental approvals. Greater clarity on technical requirements, stakeholder engagement and integration within various disciplines has been achieved thanks to the tremendous efforts by the team despite the ongoing Covid-19 challenges.
What’s the most rewarding aspect of working on these projects?
I enjoy the technical discussions and collaborations with stakeholders to achieve suitable solutions and environmental outcomes.
What can the community expect to see in coming months?
Field investigations for environmental approvals and reference design documentation will keep us very busy over the next few months.
What do you like doing in your time off?
Playing billiards and snooker, soccer, video games, watching documentaries, and socialising with friends over drinks (Via Skype these days!)
