The organisation responsible for further strengthening safety standards across the light rail sector has announced another high-profile appointment to its non-executive board.
The General Manager of London Trams, Mark Davis, brings wide-ranging experience to the Light Rail Safety and Standards Board having worked in the sector for the past 14 years in both commercial and operational leadership roles.
Responsible for setting and then leading successful strategies to deliver excellent operational, safety and financial performance, Mark has also driven Transport for London’s implementation of the RAIB recommendations following the Sandilands accident in 2016.
Carl Williams, LRSSB Chief Executive, commented: “A well-known and respected figure in the sector, Mark has continued to strive for excellence in all aspects of operations at London Trams, including delivering over 98 per cent operational performance during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Mark and his team have also ensured that the RAIB recommendations have been met by seeking out innovative ways to introduce new assets or make changes to policies, processes or procedures with one thing in mind, improving the safety performance of the tramway.
“His appointment further strengthens the LRSSB board, which was recently boosted by the addition of Colin Kerr from Edinburgh Trams and Clive Pennington from Amey.
“Together they will provide invaluable expertise and oversight as we continue our vital work to enhance light rail safety, share best practice and set new standards across the sector.”
