The Transportation Consultancy ‘ttc’ celebrate further expansion by appointing Luke Ford, as Senior Transport Planner, as of February 2021.
Luke joins from Wood Plc, where he gained seven years’ experience in Transport Planning and Highways Design, having worked on many high-profile public and private sector projects. Luke is proficient in delivering Transport Assessments and Travel Plans to support planning applications, and highly experienced in applying transport criteria to EIA’s – which makes Luke a valuable addition to the ttc team.
Luke comments, “I am excited to be joining the experienced ‘ttc’ team, and to take on new challenges, responsibilities and experiences. Over my career of working closely with clients I have developed effective communication skills and a honed methodical approach to deliver consistent, high standard results. I am looking forward to bringing this to ttc clients, and continuing to expand my expertise.”
Over his career, Luke has worked on some great projects including being lead designer on the Bedford Square Gateway project, involving the re-design of a section of Loughborough town centre with a particular focus on public realm improvements for pedestrians and non-motorised users. Involved in the initial preliminary design stage, Luke prepared detailed design drawings to take forward for tender and construction.
The improvements suggested will have a positive impact on end-users, local businesses, and residents of the area, and it’s hoped that it will be an example of how small changes can have a large impact. Other significant projects include: undertaking junction capacity assessments and transport modelling work throughout the process of re-designing a 6km section of road network in Oxford, lead designer on a public real improvement scheme in Shepshed Town Centre and preparation of reports and design material for the planning application of South Cheshire Growth Village, Crewe.
George Bailes, BSc MSc MCIHT, Director ttc, comments, “Having previously worked with Luke at AMEC, both James and I instantly recognised his talent, specifically his strong methodical approach, so the fact that he has joined ‘ttc’ is fantastic. Adding to that, Luke’s keen eye for detail, strong work ethic, client-centric approach and professional manner matches our company values and ethos perfectly, he is a real asset to ttc. In the short time he has been with us, he has already delivered excellent results, and we are proud to have him on board.”
