On leaving the army he spent two years teaching leadership and leadership development courses as part of a specialist SME, and his clients included OXFAM, DBT, Reed, and Austrade. On receiving a phone call to get involved in the Olympic Games, he applied for and got the role of head of real-time operations in the surface part of Transport for London and was appointed director of traffic operations some 14 months later. He is currently director of traffic operations and the director of road space management. During the Olympics he was responsible for the delivery into operations of the National Transport Coordination Centre for the Olympic Games, the delivery into operations of the Olympic Route Network, and the organization of the command, control, and communications structure for surface transport. He also took responsibility for the control of the last mile of pedestrian movement in Central London, the delivery of all of the road event routes for the Games, and the oversight of the torch relay, particularly the short notice requirement to steward 22 bridges for the transit of the torch on the Thames. He also put in place a testing and readiness program to prepare about 3,000 contractors and staff during the Olympic and Paralympics Games.
As director of road space management, he is currently responsible for the design, management, and operation of transport for London Road Network to support the economic development of London with a remit to deliver a once-in-a-generation transformation of London’s roads and the systems and processes used to manage them. He is playing a key role in the delivery of London’s largest-ever roads building program (£4.2 B) and is directly sponsoring the delivery, in a highly charged political environment, of £3.2 B worth of programs and projects, while keeping the busiest roads moving in the most innovative way possible. The most visible of these programs is the current Cycle Super Highway program, which is delivering the current Mayor’s Cycling Vision. He is also the chair of the Surface Transport Technology Board and is delivering a transformational 21st Traffic Management System for London, which involves starting to use big data and the cloud to revolutionize the way data are used to control the road network.
