Crossrail has appointed Network Rail development head Ian Lindsay as its new land and property director.
Mr Lindsay will be in charge of completing the project’s £800 million property acquisition programme, progressing over-site development opportunities at several sites along the route as well as safeguarding the Crossrail 2 (Chelsea-Hackney) route.
He will join Crossrail on 27 June and report to finance director David Allen.
Former land and property director Keith Berryman retired at the end of March after spending the last 10 years working on the project.
Last week Crossrail announced that Balfour Beatty director Andrew Wolstenholme would succeed outgoing chief executive Rob Holden.
The next major stage in procurement for the £15.9 billion project will be the award of main construction contracts for the six central London stations – Paddington, Bond Street, Tottenham Court, Farringdon, Liverpool Street and Whitechapel – worth in the region of £1.5bn.
