Peter David Strange
I am a Senior Project Director experienced in project management with a strong technical background in rail systems. With more than 28 years of experience in the railway industry both in Europe and the USA on projects such as the London Underground Jubilee Line Extension, London Docklands Light Rail Lewisham Extension, London Underground Connect Project, Proposal for Dublin North Metro, Denver Eagle Commuter Rail and Chicago Red Purple Modernization Project I have also experienced different contract delivery models including substantial P3 (PPP) experience.
Innovations and things of note that I have been involved with in my career include:
DLR Lewisham – One of the first Rail P3 contracts, I provided system assurance for DLR’s first two underground stations, tunnel systems and extended train control, traction power and communication systems.
LUL Connect – delivering a state-of-the-art digital trucked radio system to the entire London Underground, I project managed the delivery of the radio system including equipping more than 700 train sets over 11 metro lines, with the new radio equipment and changing over while the system maintained passenger operation.
Denver Eagle – I managed procurement and delivery of the 66 Electric Multiple Units provided by Hyundai Rotem, delivered on schedule the vehicles have performed exceptionally well helping the system exceed its on time performance targets. I also led the system integration team through all stages of the project including the extensive testing & commissioning program through to operational service also achieved on schedule
