ITS (UK) Executive Member Amey is pleased to announce the appointment of Peter Bamfield to its Highways Executive team.
Peter joins as a Business Director, taking over the management of Amey’s highways maintenance and management contract with Sheffield City Council. The contract delivers the upgrade and maintenance of roads, pavements, street lights and bridges across the city as part of a 25-year contract.
For the past five years at Colas, Peter had responsibility for the UK aviation, defence and infrastructure business, working with most UK commercial airports and Ministry of Defence establishments, including overseas territories. Peter’s experience includes major new motorway and bypass construction, highways and structures improvement and maintenance schemes and airport construction.
Previously, working on the Area 12 contract for Highways England, Peter delivered the major schemes programme, which included the delivery of many significant and complex projects. Peter gained much of his early experience at WSP and working for local authorities at the City of York Council and Wakefield Metropolitan District Council.
Managing Director for Amey’s Highways Business Unit, James Haluch, said: “For the last few years, our Highways business has been focused on continually improving how we work – improving our service delivery, developing our customer experience strategy and keeping our people safe. Peter has extensive experience working in contractor, consultant and client organisations, and a proven track record of running successful teams with strong client relationships. I am pleased to welcome Peter to my Executive Team, where he will focus on working with our client team in Sheffield to deliver services for the local community.”
Peter Bamfield added: “I am delighted to be joining James and the Highways Executive Team at an exciting time for the Highways business at Amey. Having spent the last few years working in the aviation and defence sector, I am looking forward to moving back to focusing on the highways sector where I spent much of my earlier career. The highways contract with Sheffield is a fantastic example of the benefits that investing in infrastructure can deliver for a local community, and I am keen that we continue to showcase how this investment can create better places.”
