Recognising the increasing pressure on road infrastructure from growing populations and transformative technologies, global engineering and infrastructure advisory company Aurecon has appointed Nial O’Brien as Global Service Leader – Roads.

“Road infrastructure is going through a period of unprecedented change, with growing populations, the inevitable introduction of autonomous vehicles and emerging technologies transforming how we need to plan, design, build and maintain road infrastructure,” said Ben Stapleton, Aurecon’s Managing Director Infrastructure.

Nial steps into the role appreciating the challenges ahead for road owners and operators, but excited about the potential to improve the safety and efficiency of our roads, as well as the opportunities for transforming our wider transport infrastructure networks.
