Transport consulting and engineering firm SYSTRA has made two senior appointments. Llewelyn Morgan joins as head of innovation to lead and develop new ideas, technology and methods of working.

Dr Peter Weldon, meanwhile, becomes director of net zero transport to lead the delivery of transport decarbonisation projects and assist clients in their net zero transport transition. Morgan joins from Oxford Country Council where he was head of innovation leading a cross-departmental team that undertook many Innovate UK and Government funded projects covering transport, energy, social care, health and the environment. He has led projects on connected autonomous vehicles (CAV), Mobility as a Service (Maas) and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). Oxfordshire is recognised for being at the heart of testing and trialling projects for a digital future.

Weldon joins from engineering and professional services firm GHD where he was business development lead for transport decarbonisation projects, developing business for both public and private sector clients. 

He has developed his expertise in the decarbonisation of transport over more than 10 years. Most recently he was the technical author of BSI standards aiming to improve the accessibility of EV charging infrastructure for those with disabilities. 

Llewelyn Morgan said: “I can't wait to get started at SYSTRA which has a rich pedigree in R&D investment having established a cross-business innovation unit in Paris over 20 years ago. SYSTRA in the UK and Ireland is already working on many major projects which will benefit from new ideas and ways of working."

Dr Peter Weldon said: “It's such an exciting time to be involved in the transport decarbonisation space. The transition from a fossil fuel based society to net zero emissions will be tackled through a multi-faceted approach including zero emission vehicles and a wholesale shift to public transport and active travel. I am already working on several exciting projects which will be trailblazers for our clients and for our industry."
