Sharon Daly our UK Managing Director has been featured in the latest issue of Local Transport Today. Steer Davies Gleave appointed Sharon as its first UK managing director last summer (read more here). In an interview for Local Transport Today she tells Andrew Forster why the new role was necessary and explains SDG’s areas of UK activity.
Many city and regional planning exercises begin with a big map on the table, a pack of marker pens in hand, and a predetermined conclusion that new infrastructure will be needed.
It’s not surprising that people instinctively jump to a mapping exercise: building new roads, bridges, tunnels, subways or light rail transit is an exciting prospect that can help improve mobility and reduce congestion and crowding. However, if we jump straight to identifying infrastructure as the “answer”, we may be missing a major opportunity to deliver benefits more quickly and affordably.
Chris Proud joins international transport planning consultancy Steer Davies Gleave from CH2MHILL, Inc. where he was a Senior Transit Planner and Project Manager in their global rail and transit market segment. Chris’ appointment, along with the recent addition of Tim Baldwin, is another significant step to further enhance SDG’s future in the United States and Canadian transportation markets.
