How are you qualified to take this role on?
We have a track record of finding out what passengers want and working with the transport industry to deliver improvements.
We have appointed Guy Dangerfield as road user director, and are continuing to strengthen our capabilities around the challenges of roads, having spent recent months working with key stakeholders to understand the issues road users face. From 1 May 2015, Theo de Pencier, will be joining Transport Focus’s Board. Theo will champion the views of users of the strategic road network as he is currently the chief executive of the Freight Transport Association (FTA). He is due to retire from the FTA shortly. More importantly, the Government has entrusted us with this new role because of our successful record of speaking up for passengers, and it is confident that the skills we have finessed there will transfer well to road user issues.
