Robertson takes helm of NSW transport
Former union boss John Robertson was sworn in on Friday as New South Wales transport minister.
His appointment follows the resignation of former minister David Campbell who quit dramatically after being filmed by a television news crew leaving a Sydney sex club last week.
David Borger has been given the roads portfolio, while Paul Lynch takes on responsibility for industrial relations, commerce, energy and public sector reform.
Mr Robertson entered state parliament in late 2008, taking the seat of former treasurer Michael Costa who resigned after a failed effort to sell the NSW power industry.
As secretary for Unions New South Wales, Mr Robertson had opposed the power sale, which was to fund some of his new department's key projects.
The transport portfolio includes responsibility for the state's rail and freight policy and implementation.
