London never stops – and it’s our job to keep London moving.
Today 8.6 million people call it home and over the next 15 years, there will be 1.1 million more, so the transport infrastructure must develop with the city.
London’s population growth is fuelling a boom in property investment and development resulting in more homes, shops, public spaces, workplaces and ultimately more journeys. At the same time, Londoners and businesses have growing expectations of the quality of the streets where they live and work.
As part of an integrated response to the way London is changing and growing, TfL has launched the Road Modernisation Plan which represents the biggest investment in London’s roads in a generation, including hundreds of transformational projects within the existing road network.
The need to build for the future and keep London moving is a continual challenge in a city with a road network that was never designed to cater for so much traffic. As a member of the Network Impact Management Team, you will be right in the middle of this major challenge.
You will support the regional Principal Network Impact Assessment Engineer in the strategic forward planning of planned networks improvements and works in order to minimise delays and disruption on London’s road network.
Your remit will be wide and varied, focused both on current operational challenges and future projects and programmes. You’ll provide area-specific information and assist in production of network performance indicators (heat maps / corridor predictions) for current and future years. Working closely with a Principal Network Impact Engineer, you’ll produce and maintain a rolling 5 year plan for the coordination of all planned interventions and events on London’s road network, consulting with a wide variety of internal and external stakeholders.
To be equal to the challenge, you will need a track record in traffic engineering, including significant roads engineering and capacity assessment experience. You will have a demonstrable flair for analysing problems in urban environments and providing solutions.
Your technical skills include use of tools like LINSIG and TRANSYT and you’re also adept at supporting project management. Due to the varied nature of your responsibilities, a flexible approach to projects will be vital. The role will see you work closely with a range of directorates, government bodies and external stakeholders. The ability to consult and clearly explain your decisions to them will be key to your success.
In return for your dedication and expertise, you will enjoy excellent benefits and scope to grow. Rewards vary according to the business area and role, but include:
- Final salary pension scheme
- Free travel for you and a nominated partner/family member on the TfL network
- A 75% discount on National Rail Season Ticket and interest-free loan
- 30 days annual leave plus public holidays
- Private healthcare discounted scheme - optional
