Ventia's BMS Motorway Response Officer Greg Cox has been recognised as the 2022 AfPA Flexible Pavement Field Worker of the year. Greg is a military veteran that has successfully transitioned to the civilian work force specialising in providing safe lane availability for high speed, high risk, open road networks. 

Often referred to as "Hero of the road", Greg is responsible for the operations of one of Brisbane's most iconic infrastructure - the Gateway Bridge and motorway.

Greg, along with other members of the Brisbane Motorway Services (BMS) Incident Response Team, manage 64km of motorway including 88 bridges and are responsible for the safe passage of over 320,000 Brisbane motorists per day.

Often first on scene prior to Emergency Services arrival, Greg delivers service excellence while working in a high risk and high-speed open road environment.  From attending medical emergencies, vehicle fires, people at risk of self-harm to routine breakdowns, he performs a high profile community leadership role. 

Greg sets a high standard and is truly passionate about keeping motorists safe. It's great to see him recognised for his dedication,' says Simon Kirkpatrick General Manager BMS.
