Following a year working on major highway scheme design in Bracknell new town he worked for 15 years in all aspects of transport and traffic work for Local Authorities in London, from detailed local traffic management to strategic transport planning, latterly as Transport Planning Team Leader with Haringey Council, in the often highly politicised or otherwise contentious planning and development situations in London.
Since then he has worked in the transport consultancy sector, initially employed in a senior capacity by well established consultancy firms for a number of years before establishing his own consultancy practice, Transport and Traffic Consultancy, in 1994. Throughout this period he has worked on or managed a very wide range of projects and studies, both for the private development sector and for local and other public authorities, and has served as Expert Witness at numerous appeals against refusal of planning permission, both for appellants and for local planning authorities
Of particular note have been the production of the London Red Routes Local Plan for the borough of Southwark, traffic management proposals to complement the London Congestion Charge scheme in south London, accident and casualty reduction studies for major road corridors in Essex and London, and transport infrastructure and impact studies and proposals for major land development schemes such as Greenwich Peninsula and on Canvey Island, Essex.
He has served on various committees of the Chartered Institute of Transport and its successor the Institute of Logistics and Distribution, and the Transport Statistics Users’ Group, and has served as a part-time lecturer in transport at Westminster College, Battersea.
