Mr. Dalwood is a civil engineer experienced in strategic transport planning, concept planning and design, business case development and community engagement in transport planning matters.

He spent 19 years with the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure, South Australia where he was responsible for the project management and delivery of numerous multi-disciplinary integrated transport and land-use planning studies for the state, working on major projects such as the North-South Corridor.

“What impresses me most about Mott MacDonald is its depth of knowledge, resulting from the collaborative approach collaboration across its global transport sector,” said Mr. Dalwood, commenting on his appointment.

“This gives clients a service that many other consultants are unable to match either due to their size or the way their businesses are structured.”

In Adelaide, the consultancy has been involved in the planning and concept phase of the Anzac Highway to Regency Road project and is also part of the T2T Alliance delivering the Torrens Road to River Torrens Project, a 4km non-stop section of roadway currently under construction.

David Johnson, Mott MacDonald’s managing director for Australia and New Zealand said the challenges our cities face today are very different to those a decade ago – but so are the answers.

“We provide better solutions for our clients because we have a solid understanding of how current and emerging technologies can improve our clients’ transport strategies, planning and prioritisation processes. Leigh’s extensive knowledge and experience will further enhance the outcomes we’re able to deliver to our clients.”
