Australia's future - now more than ever - needs public transport infrastructure

PLOT OUTLINE: Rattled by safety risks WATERMAN lost it, revealing a deep personal loss. He's inconsolable, alone outside Blackburn's former Westpac branch. Then MASTON shows up - we've got a whistle-blower.

PLOT SUMMARY: Rattled, WATERMAN had found himself back at Morton Park where the local club is thumping the visiting team. But as kids kick and chase footy's behind the goals...if one ball bounces the wrong way - Kids, bikes and trucks don't mix. Safety risks - kick and chase.

WATERMAN loses it, revealing a deep personal loss.

His mind turning over repeatedly, WATERMAN is inconsolable. Alone. Works go on unabated around Blackburn's Level Crossing Removal Project. None of it registers with WATERMAN...Until his phone rings. The film crew witnesses WATERMAN's heated exchange with one of his colleagues.

Then MASTON shows up to confront WATERMAN, demanding comments about a folio of glossy A4 photo's alleging worksite corruption.

STM Asia Pacific Construction has a whistle-blower.

When the safety of local kids in WATERMAN's community is put at risk by train and public transport sector works around a local football oval, the infrastructure consultant must choose between his job and his own moral code.

---
WATERMAN is an infrastructure consultant overseeing project timelines for STM Asia Pacific Construction and the Victorian State Government.

When the safety of local kids's in his community is put at risk by train and public transport sector works around a local football oval, WATERMAN's professionalism is tested. His work obligations are gradually eroded by internal corporate politicking and a moral duty to acknowledge his own conflicts of interest: safety, destruction of trees and works around the local train station.

Pressure builds further when WATERMAN reveals a deep personal loss. An investigative journalist with a folio of glossy A4 photo's confronts WATERMAN, demanding comments about alleged worksite corruption.

Suspecting a whistleblower, WATERMAN is forced to seek answers from a dubious industry source. Corporate espionage. Black Ops. Call it what you want - it's risky. It's his job.

How much danger is WATERMAN prepared to put himself in?

-
Join WATERMAN'S 'public relations tour' around Melbourne's exploding construction activity for exclusive behind-the-scenes access to some of the biggest train network infrastructure project's this country has ever seen.
