Transit Systems shows commitment to Gladstone

UMBRELLA organisation Transit Systems last week officially opened the doors to its Gladstone operations.

The building in Alf O'Rourke Dr is the only regional centre for the Transit Systems servicing Gladstone Ferries.

Transit Systems officer Rob Mitchell said the opening of the new building was a display of commitment to the Gladstone region.

"This building will provide a centralised location for 80 crew as a lunchroom facility, as well as providing a central point for units, offices and berths," he said.

"This is just part of our long-term commitment to Gladstone."

Community figures gathered at the new building last Thursday to welcome the future of Transit Systems in central Queensland.

Transit Systems chief executive Clint Feuerherdt affirmed the opening signified new beginnings for the team, and for the town.

"We are hoping this building will bring our team closer together in a harmonious environment," he said.

"But importantly, we are hoping this building will demonstrate our keenness to remain in Gladstone beyond the construction period of the LNG plants on Curtis Island."

The building was conceptualised as servicing central Queensland from the Alf O'Rourke site as the organisation continues to expand in the future.

Gladstone Ports Corporation chief executive Craig Doyle said he was rapt that the building would be used by a wide range of people, for a wide range of applications.

"I'd like to thank all of the stakeholders in seeing this projection to realisation," he said.

"Among them, the Harbour Master, APLNG, Bechtel, QCLNG and GLNG."
