Capacity Planning Manager Recruited by D2 Rail

D2 Rail is pleased to welcome Andy Pepworth to our Planning and Scheduling Team, in the position of Capacity Planning Manager. Andy’s role as Capacity Planning Manager, will focus on timetable development and performance modelling, which is a new area of expertise and complements the current core business offerings.

He will be based at our King Street office and will be working with Planning Director Simon Blair, to seamlessly integrate and deliver for our many infrastructure customers, this exciting new area of expertise.

Andy has over two decades of railway industry experience and has during this time developed a strong knowledge of capacity utilisation, timetabling, rail operations and signalling. This has been gained from both UK and international programmes, providing operational advice on large projects such as Crossrail, Thameslink, Dubai Metro and Northern Hub as well as 8 years with Network Rail.

For the past 5 years, Andy has been working predominantly in the United Arab Emirates, fulfilling a mixture of project management, rail operations and capacity planning roles, as well as responding to operational incidents.

Andy is delighted to be back in the UK with his family and looking forward to working with D2 in the ambient temperatures of central Manchester.

Welcome on board the D2 express Andy, we all look forward to working with you.
