WSP has announced the appointment of two new deputy group directors for rail engineering services.
Ex-Network Rail project manager Andrew Dodds will oversee the south and Steve Burrows, who has delivered projects in the UK, Australia and Singapore, will oversee the north region. Between them the pair have almost 50 years’ experience in the industry.
WSP said it has brought the two on board to ensure the business is “best placed to secure and deliver the growing pipeline of strategic rail… contracts”.
Andrew has worked in client, design and construction organisations to deliver major projects such as the West Coast Route Modernisation and East West Rail.
Based in Birmingham, he will drive business excellence and build engineering resilience across the rail team. His contribution will help the business to deliver on projects such as HS2’s Birmingham Curzon Street and Old Oak Common stations.
Meanwhile Steve, previously an associate in the rail leadership team at Arup, will be based in Manchester and focused on enhancing WSP’s service offerings and growing the consultancy’s international project pipeline.
