Costain, the smart infrastructure solutions company, has appointed Andy Clarke as integrated transport director.
Constain says the creation of this new role reflects the importance placed by the business on working collaboratively with a range of partners to transform the customer experience of transport – helping to catalyse the green transport revolution.
Clarke said: “At Costain, we see integrated multi-modal transport solutions as critical to our efforts to enable healthier, happier, and better-connected communities.
“By leveraging new technologies and even more collaborative ways of working, we can enable seamless, cleaner, and more active journeys for customers.
“This is essential if we are to provide a compelling journey experience which encourages customers to opt for blended journeys, which help to reduce our carbon footprint.”
Andy will continue to lead Costain’s aviation offering, recognising the importance of high-quality connections from the transport network to national and regional airports, as well as supporting the industry to decarbonise.
Sue Kershaw, managing director of transportation at Costain, said: “We’ve been delivering complex programmes across the UK for over 155 years.
“Combined with our in-house consultancy capability and digital know-how, we are well-placed to work with local authorities, operators, customer groups and industry partners to enhance and create transport systems which place the customer at their heart.”
Andy concluded: “This is a very exciting time for the future of transport in the UK.
“However, we can only realise the true benefits of this approach if we work across the siloes and truly collaborate to ensure that our transport network as a whole works for customers and communities.”
