WSP brings in transport directors to boost HS2 plans

WSP has made a trio of appointments to its transport and infrastructure team.

The consultant has hired three new directors for its transport and infrastructure divisions as part of plans to capitalise on opportunities from HS2.

Andrew Dodds joins as deputy group director of rail engineering services for the South, Steve Burrows becomes deputy group director for rail engineering services in the North, and Iain Salisbury is the new design-and-build director of the highways team based in Glasgow.

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.
