Australia: Global engineering and infrastructure advisory firm Aurecon has appointed Mieszko Iwaskow as its Transport Planning Leader. Mr Iwaskow’s appointment comes at a pivotal time, with the resilience of infrastructure and the demands of urban growth transforming user expectations and the way transport systems are designed.
Based in New Zealand, Mr Iwaskow’s industry experience in transport planning, project delivery, team leadership and management effectively complements the breadth and depth of expertise offered by the growing global team of transport planners that he will lead at Aurecon.
Commenting that transport is currently in a period of revolution not seen since the start of automobile mass production in the early 1900s, Mr Iwaskow’s said the fusion of emerging new technologies and digital services with transport planning gives unprecedented opportunity to advance how we grow cities and provide transport choices to people.
His experience in transport planning and delivery leadership roles with the NZTA, included periods leading both the Transport Planning and Project Delivery teams for Auckland and Northland alongside other National and Project Board roles.
While with NZTA, Mr Iwaskow also spent a year embedded in the successful Well-Connected Alliance for the recently opened AU$2-billion Waterview Tunnels project and subsequently led the Transport Agency team responsible for some of the associated Western Ring Route Projects.
