New Thinker for SA
Posted Tue May 19, 2009 7:36am AEST
The South Australian Government has appointed US transport expert Fred Hansen as its next Thinker in Residence.
The Government says Mr Hansen, who served in the Environmental Protection Agency under former President Bill Clinton, has recently been asked to oversee sustainability operations of the American Public Transport Association.
Mr Hansen will work with the Government to develop plans for its light rail extension to Semaphore.
He will take up his role in October.
Mr Hansen will take over from Professor Laura Lee, who has been providing ideas in environment and sustainability.
