My greatest interest in life is understanding the mechanics and behaviour of everything I see around me – from the lack of communication in the construction trade right through to knowing why queues in banks happen. Knowledge is key to understanding and understanding allows us to find ways to improve systems and equipment. Put simply, I thrive on ideas that overcome problems. I ended up in the railway industry because I wanted to be involved in improving a service for the public. This is just one of my core values. Read on to find out more.

Steven Johnson Rail Engineering Services

For the last seven years I have been based in Sydney and have been involved in projects Australia wide.

For the last two years I have worked as an adviser and consultant providing advice on track renewal processes and techniques as well as acting as a business development adviser to an overseas manufacturer of heavy track maintenance equipment.

Prior to this I specialised in the management of heavy rail plant, tendering, bid management and strategy development. Latterly I have focused on General Management in a role where I managed a business of highly skilled operators and maintainers operating large on track maintenance plant.

Over the last 15 years I have worked in the rail infrastructure sector on projects from switches & crossings renewals for Network Rail to in-house business improvement and more latterly to business development. My skills and experience can help you improve how you do business or how you deliver a railway project. Rail asset owners are looking for huge savings from their contractors whilst also asking for increases in quality and output. My involvement in Network Rail’s modular Switches & Crossings programme has given me a unique insight into what Britain’s major railway client is expecting from their contractors in the future.
