Hi I’m Keith, I have worked as a Transport Planner for over 28 years, supporting private and public sector development projects of massively varying scales and types. I have assisted with the masterplanning of large sports stadia, including the famous “Birds Nest” Olympic Stadium in Beijing as well as Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium.
I very much enjoy having an involvement in projects from their concept stages, like assisting with mass transit schemes such as the expansion of Manchester’s Metrolink light rail network and advising upon major projects like the Liverpool Waters Regeneration Scheme, which will occupy a long swathe of the city’s historic waterfront.
I love to find solutions to unlock challenging development sites to make them appropriate for their proposed use by connecting into the surrounding active travel and public transport networks.
Outside of work I love being outdoors and I favour anything which keeps my hands busy because this gives my mind something to focus on. I enjoy working with wood (my grandfather was a cabinet maker, so I guess its in my genes). My biggest project was a 20 square metre timber decking area on a frame which I designed to fold away against the garden fence, via a wirelessly controlled winch of course! – my video of it has nearly 200,000 views on Youtube. My most recent and smaller scale project was this pergola, to make the best of my modest urban yard.
