D2 Rail Adds to its Planning and Scheduling Team

D2 Rail is pleased to announce the appointment of Jill Dyson to the position of Senior Planner.

Jill will be based at 111 Piccadilly, Manchester – the offices of our Transpennine Route Upgrade West of Leeds Project – and will be initially working with the Railway Signalling team, to develop the GRIP 3 design programmes to completion.  She will then be progressing onto further project specific programme development and liaison with the Digital Rail team, in order to produce a route-wide integration schedule. Jill will report to both Jon Ainsworth, as the Alliance planning lead, and our own Planning Director, Simon Blair.

Jill joins us from Siemens, where she held the role of Senior Planner for the Weaver to Wavertree Re-Signalling Project.  Jill has 20 years’ experience in the rail industry, predominantly working on GRIP 4-8 multi-discipline projects, with a signalling bias.

In her spare time, Jill enjoys running and competing in race events, from 10ks to marathons.

We welcome Jill to our team and wish her all the best in her new role.
