RAIL GURU IMPROVES CONNECTIVITY IN THE WEST

To help clients respond to the growing demand for rail services, WSP has appointed Graham Holden as Major Projects Director and Rail Executive for Western Australia (WA) and South Australia (SA).

 

 

Both Federal and State governments are committed to significant investments in rail infrastructure over the coming years. This includes the multi-billion dollar Perth Metronet program, which is forecast to create more than 10,000 jobs, considerably reduce congestion and improve connectivity across the city and metropolitan area.

WSP’s General Manager for Rail, Mike Jenkins, welcomed Mr Holden and highlighted the significance of the appointment.

“Mr Holden will be based in Perth. He has been involved in delivering some of WA’s most iconic rail projects including the new Perth Stadium Station and Forrestfield Airport Link.

“Mr Holden is driven by creating infrastructure which reduces travel time, provides safe journey for passengers and improves connectivity and the overall commuting experience,” said Mr Jenkins.

With 28 years’ experience, Mr Holden will play an important role in growing WSP’s WA infrastructure business. His project experience includes NorthLink Stages 2 and 3, Perth Airport Expansion, MAX Light Rail, Oakajee Port and Rail Feasibility Studies, and the Simandou Rail Project in Guinea, West Africa.

Mr Holden is a Chartered Engineer and Immediate Past Executive Chair for the Railway Technical Society of Australasia. He is a member of the Committee for Perth’s Reshaping Working Group, and was Chair for the Committee’s Transport and Congestion Taskforce between 2014 and 2016.
