    New Generation Rollingstock inquiry

    Retired District Court Judge Michael Forde will conduct an inquiry into the procurement of Queensland’s New Generation Rollingstock (NGR) trains, and their failure to comply with disability laws.

    His appointment was approved by cabinet this morning.

    Mr Forde will be able to access relevant documents in the procurement process including technical specifications, design approvals and cabinet documents.

    Mr Forde will commence his inquiry in August and report to the government with recommendations late this year.

    Mr Forde’s full terms of reference will be released once approved by Executive Council.
