D2 Rail are pleased to announce the appointment of two new team members to our growing rail programme management consultancy.

We are pleased to welcome Utilities Manager, Graeme Clarke and Planner, Richard Riding to the D2 Rail family.

Graeme is a knowledgeable Utilities Manager, with 29 years’ experience within the Construction, Civil Engineering and Utilities Sectors. He will be based at the TRU West of Leeds Office and will provide Utilities Consultancy support to Divisional lead, Steve Cooper. He joins us from WSP, where he held the role of Utilities Manager, working on various projects involving the design and co-ordination of multi-utility diversions and connections.

Richard joins us from Morrison Utility Services, where he had been working as a Senior Planner/Programme Manager on their water network mains replacement and rehabilitation programmes. He is a well-rounded construction industry professional, having started his industry career in 2001 as a Site Engineer/Manager on the Yorkshire Water frameworks, before moving into Planning with Costain. Richard will also be based in the TRU West of Leeds office working on a mix of route wide and specific intervention projects reporting into D2’s Planning Director, Simon Blair.

We wish both Richard and Graeme much happiness and success in their new roles.
