Mr Dodds has 27 years’ experience in the rail industry and will be based in WSP’s Birmingham office, having joined from Network Rail .
His responsibilities will include “building engineering resilience” across the rail team, securing new deals and delivering key projects such as HS2’s Birmingham Curzon Street station and Old Oak Common station.
Mr Burrows has 20 years’ experience in the industry having designed projects across the UK, Australia and Singapore.
His role will focus on enhancing WSP’s service offerings and growing the consultancy’s international project pipeline.
Mr Salisbury (pictured) joins from Jacobs (formerly CH2M) where he held the role of project director, delivering schemes such as the 58 km bypass for Aberdeen, and a section of the M60 widening in Manchester.
