IHT's Ogden wins OBE

INSTITUTION OF Highways and Transportation president David Ogden received an OBE in this week's Queen's Birthday Honours.

Ogden was honoured for his record as an engineer and businessman, as well as his robust contributions to the Integrated Transport debate. The Parkman director and ICE fellow has been outspoken in his view that highway planning needs to be driven by realism, not politics.

Based in the North West throughout his career, Ogden was closely involved in the region's motorway building programme during the 1960s and 1970s. He joined Parkman in the 1980s, becoming an executive director in 1989.

Three other civil engineers also received MBEs. They were: Sibdas Chakrabarti (M), Highways Agency senior bridge engineer; Dugald Gonsal (M), London Borough of Camden, former chief engineer, for services to highway and civil engineering; and Philip Shimmin (F), Highland Council director of roads and transport, for services to road and transport in the Highlands & Islands.
