With over 15 years’ experience working on many major projects, Rowan will help to give the team a renewed focus for 2021. For the past two years, Rowan has managed the Hobsons Bay Transport Planning Study for the Department of Transport Victoria (DoT), developing a comprehensive plan to create a more connected network.
More recently he has taken on the role of Project Director for the Tram Stop Rollout Strategy – Design Advisor where the team will develop designs for what the new tram stops should look like into the future aligning with the DoT’s Movement and Place Framework and User Mindsets.
Alana Newbrook, Director of Advisory, says, “Through smart planning and mobility solutions, our team collaborates with clients to help them find effective and sustainable strategies to improve our communities and our quality of life.
“I am excited to work with Rowan on all aspects of our Future Ready agenda, including the seismic changes across all aspects of mobility, as we plan and develop infrastructure and systems for the cities and regions of today and the future.”
The Planning and Mobility team is a diverse, highly skilled and passionate group of 114 people working nationally across Australia and also in India. With three core capabilities – Planning and Mobility, New Mobility and Intelligent Transport Systems – the team provides technical and high-value strategic advice to support Transport and Place-based projects.
Rowan adds, “In 2021, our focus as a team will be on clients – building lasting client relationships, people and culture – delivering locally, expertise – leaving a legacy and operational excellence – doing the simple things right.”
“The new year provides an exciting opportunity for our team as we transition to the newly formed Advisory, Environment and Digital (AED) business unit. This will enhance collaboration with other teams in AED providing us with an opportunity to help a broader range of clients through a more integrated service offering.”
“Already, there is a lot of excitement in the air and we are well placed to capitalise on opportunities.”
Rowan commenced his role in September 2020.
