Crossrail’s Chairman Terry Morgan has received a knighthood in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for services to infrastructure, skills and employment – and is among a host of transportation professionals to have been recognised this week.
They include John Parkinson, the Department for Transport’s director of motoring, freight and London, who is made a CBE for services to transport and diversity in the workplace.
Margaret Calvert, who helped to design many of the road signs in use in the UK, receives an OBE for services to typography and road safety. And the London Borough of Lewisham’s road safety and sustainable transport manager Elizabeth Brooker receives an MBE for services to road safety.
Ealing Community Transport chief executive Anna Whitty has received an MBE for services to community transport and Department for Transport consultant Roger Agombar is made an MBE for services to tackling drink and drug driving.
Among those leading the congratulations to Sir Terry Morgan is London’s Transport Commissioner Mike Brown, who said: “Sir Terry has played an immense role in championing hundreds of apprentices and spearheading a skills legacy that will benefit people across the country. As Crossrail chairman he has driven forward a huge project that will revolutionise travel in and around London.”
Elizabeth Brooker, who receives an MBE, said: “I have been involved in road safety for 32 years and feel as passionately about it as I did when I started.” As well as her role with Lewisham she speaks on behalf of Road Safety GB and the London Road Safety Council.More Articles by Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation (CIHT) ...
