Highways Agency makes interim major projects boss permanent appointment

The Highways Agency has confirmed that its interim major projects director Peter Adams is to retain the role on a permanent basis.

Adams will become the permanent successor to Nirmal Kotecha, who left the Agency last Autumn. Adams joined the Agency in 2009 as divisional director for major projects in southern England. Before joining the Agency he spent 20 years with BAA in engineering and project management roles, and three years with Thames Water developing their asset management strategy and business plan.

As major projects director he will be responsible for delivery of the strategic roads programme, including Managed Motorway schemes, as well as working with his teams to develop further projects for future delivery.

The budget of £2.3bn for major road schemes within this spending review period was increased by around £700M following chancellor George Osborne’s Autumn Statement in November 2011.
