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 & 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?

Forget the idea’s economy – it’s garbage. Australia’s future lies within the public transport infrastructure sector. 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.
‘The Contract: PROJECT Waterman’ is Australia’s newest webseries.
