London Underground hires Heathrow director as renewals boss

London Underground has hired a Heathrow director to head up its renewals and enhancements team.

Former Heathrow delivery director Caroline Sheridan will join LU in November to lead the directorate.

The newly created role will see Ms Sheridan take responsibility for managing the replacement of tracks, rolling stock and station fixtures and fittings across the network, with the aim of driving efficiency and reducing costs.

The directorate will also support the delivery of major projects across the network, including the upgrade of Bank station, as well as increasing the accessibility of stations for disabled passengers.

Ms Sheridan’s is the latest appointment as part of a reorganisation at TfL.

Last year the client merged its surface access and rail and underground engineering arms to form one larger centralised team, as part of a plan to cut costs following mayor Sadiq Khan’s fare freezes.

Construction News also reported in May that TfL had set up a new major projects division to be led on an interim basis by former Heathrow exec Ian Ballentine.

Ms Sheridan joins from Heathrow, where she has spent more than a decade as a project leader, senior project manager and most recently as delivery director overseeing all airside and landside construction projects.
