Gordon Wilson has been appointed as contract director at Scotland TranServ.

Scotland TranServ is a Mouchel/Balfour Beatty joint venture which manages and maintains south west Scotland’s motorways and trunk roads.

Wilson (pictured) has significant experience of the Scottish roads maintenance market and brings over 30 years’ experience of roads operations both in the public and private sectors having previously spearheaded roads operations for Lothian Regional Council, West Lothian Council and North Lanarkshire Council as well as holding director level posts in the roads consultancy market with Grotmij and most recently Mouchel.

Over the past year, as business unit director for Mouchel, Wilson had played a pivotal role in the contract on the joint venture board with a particular focus on operational activity.

Head of network maintenance at Transport Scotland, Graham Edmond said:

“We look forward to working with Gordon in the management of the south west unit. This includes some of the busiest roads in Scotland and we are confident that Gordon will help us deliver the highest quality service to our customers.”

Wilson commented: “I am delighted to be joining Scotland TranServ where there is an exciting but challenging opportunity to drive the business forward. Not only will I be looking to recruit the right people into the right roles, but also instilling an ethos that ensures our employees go home safely to their families each day.

“I will be working closely with Transport Scotland, local authorities and our partners to make a long term difference to south west Scotland’s roads; whilst making a significant contribution within our local communities.”
