Former HS2 director bags high-speed job in Australia

A former HS2 technical director has been recruited to assist with the development of a high-speed network in New South Wales (NSW), Australia.

Professor Andrew McNaughton will lead an expert panel which will assess and advise on the most appropriate routes, train speeds and station locations for the lines.

The high-speed rail expert, who now has more than 45 years’ experience in the rail industry, became HS2’s first official employee back in 2009. He stepped down as technical director in December 2017 but remains as a strategic technical advisor on a part-time basis.
