New rail chief for WSP

WSP has appointed Julie Carrier to head up its fast growing rail business.

Carrier joins WSP with 20 years’ experience in the management, design and delivery of operational railways. Her appointment reflects the rapid growth of WSP’s rail business, and follows the appointment last year of new head of rail systems, Chris Lawrence. The firm expects growth to continue this year against a strong market.

Head of infrastructure at WSP Duncan Symonds said: ’We are now focussing on developing our rail business into a wider service offering both in the UK and to support our global business.’
