Our organisation


The department is committed to the principles outlined in the Public Sector Ethics Act 1994. These principles are embedded in our corporate governance framework and guide our everyday business practices. The Director-General and the department’s senior executives demonstrate the elements of good corporate governance through:

  • a well-articulated strategy and direction
  • clearly defined management structures
  • robust management standards
  • internal and external accountability measures
  • sound risk management practices.


  • Celebrated 10 years since Queensland Transport and Department of Main Roads formed to make TMR.
  • Blocked over 13 million suspicious emails in the last 12 months.
  • Released the Digital Capability Development Partnership Agreement as a whole-of-government Standing Offer Arrangement.
  • Established a cloud-enabled analytics platform—the Transport Data Exchange—to support, connect and share organisational analytics capabilities, platforms and data.
