Richard started working in transport planning in 1990 after spending his formative years working in the wider field of civil engineering. During that time, he worked on large civil engineering schemes such as the A55 North Wales Coast Road and the Ruabon/Newbridge/Chirk bypass, while employed at Travers Morgan. After an 18 year career in the transport planning team at Travers Morgan/Symonds/Capita, during which time he worked on projects such as the Reading Oracle, Farnborough Business Park and the Liberty Centre, Romford, he joined TPA in May 2015.
Based in the London office, Richard has significant experience in both highways and transportation planning, providing high level and detailed transport and highway consultancy advice to a range of clients in the private and public sectors with projects ranging from shopping centres, business parks, mixed use developments, hospitals, schools and housing.
He has a broad background in the highways field with extensive knowledge of all aspects of highway design, drawn from his work on the design of the A55 North Wales Coast Road and from other large highway schemes.
Outside of work, Richard’s interests include photography, archery, badminton, hill walking and for his sins, following the travails of West Ham United.
