Yesterday’s inaugural World Infrastructure News Awards judging session was a great success, with a fantastic spread of projects and some passionate, enlightening debate from our team of esteemed judges.

We are delighted to announce the addition of Alastair Lansley to our transport jury panel. Alastair is a self confessed dyed-in-the-wool railway man and we welcome his input on this panel.
Alastair Lansley CBE was Chief Architect for the CTRL project and is a designer with considerable experience in the multi-disciplinary design of transport interchanges. Working with Nick Derbyshire, he was the project architect for the award-winning redevelopment of London’s Liverpool Street Station and for Ashford International Station in Kent, the gateway to Britain for Eurostar services from Europe.
In 1996, he joined Arup as an Associate Director where he worked for Rail Link Engineering (RLE), the Channel Tunnel Rail Link design and construction management consortium. He led the RLE architectural design team for the reconstruction of St Pancras Station in London as well as for the International Stations at Ebbsfleet and Stratford.
In 2005, he was seconded into Union Railways North as the client’s architect with responsibility for ensuring that all 3 stations were satisfactorily delivered to the client’s requirements.
