Network Rail's Simon Wright fills Mitchell void as Crossrail programme director

Crossrail has announced Network Rail project development director Simon Wright will replace Andy Mitchell as programme director.

Wright is currently leading Network Rail’s work with High Speed 2 on the redevelopment of Euston station and was previously director of infrastructure and utilities at the Olympic Delivery Authority. He will assume the new role this summer.

“The Crossrail programme is now over halfway to completion with the end of major civils in sight and a team fully engaged on delivering stations fit-out and the transition to an operational railway,” said chief executive Andrew Wolstenholme. “Simon will lead the delivery team during this important second half as we move closer to realising this critically important project for London and the UK.”

Wright has also worked for Arup where he ran the project management business, which included the provision of health and safety behavioural change programmes.
