Smart Mobility and Intelligent Transport Systems specialist
Traffic and transport pressures are problematic for three main reasons: they stifle economic growth, contribute to higher carbon emissions, and inconvenience millions of people. Together with public and private clients, I help to relieve these pressures in our ever-expanding cities, through sustainable development and innovation.
As the former Director of the Northern Advisory Group & Botswana at Royal HaskoningDHV, I led teams of smart people who design robust and integrated transport networks and mobility nodes that improve urban movement. Through smart, environmentally-conscious approaches, we help our clients to enhance society and change lives.
With considerable experience in urban traffic control, strategic transport planning, multi-disciplinary project management, and property development, I approach every project with dynamic thinking, sustained focus, and financial and business acumen.
My career highlights include designing an advanced parking management system that improved efficiency at Brisbane Airport’s domestic terminal parking from 65% to 95%; developing an Intelligent Transport System Framework for the City of Johannesburg; and optimising and synchronising mobility arterials and traffic signals, to help the Johannesburg Roads Agency (JRA) reduce congestion, improve traffic flow, and decrease emissions.
