NCE stock roads

Highways England has appointed ex-Hill International vice president Peter Mumford as interim executive director for major projects.

Mumford, who has also held senior posts at Aecom, EC Harris LLP and Turner & Townsend, will stay in the role until a permanent appointment is made.

Previous executive director for major projects at Highways England, Peter Adams, has moved to a new role at London City Airport.

Highways England chief executive Jim O’Sullivan said: “I am really pleased to have Peter join the executive team. It is important that we continue to have the right mix of individuals to lead the company as we deliver the challenging target we have been set by government.”

Highways England is carrying out its £15bn Road Investment Strategy (RIS1) which covers more than 100 major improvement schemes. In June O’Sullivan told New Civil Engineer that a broader range of civils companies could win work on its upcoming RIS2 programme, running from 2020-2025.
