Lindley has built a successful 27-year career in the rail industry, gaining a wealth of experience in the UK and overseas leading complex multi-disciplinary infrastructure and rail programmes.
His most recent role was as Vice President for Metrolinx on the Toronto Union Station Rail Corridor and the Toronto Light Rail Transit.
Prior to working in Canada, Lindley was the Alliance Director on the Trans-Pennine Route Eastern Section for Network Rail, having worked previously for Carillion as Project Delivery Director on a number of programmes, including the Great Northern / Great Eastern Enhancement (Phase 2 Civils), and earlier as the Alliance Manager on the North London Lines.
He will report to Keltbray Managing Director of Rail, Neil Thompson.
Thompson said: “Neil’s appointment is a major boost to our HS2 ambitions, building on work being undertaken by other parts of the group for the construction joint ventures, as we pursue and deliver major packages of work on Europe’s largest and most complex infrastructure project.
“His industry-leading experience gained as both a client and delivery partner will greatly benefit Keltbray in developing sustainable design, construction and programme management capabilities to deliver critical elements on the world’s most carbon-efficient, high speed rail network for the UK tax payer.”
