Speaker : Peter Turland
Starting my career at Nottinghamshire County Council from school as a trainee technician, gaining experience in many aspects of highway engineering from design and maintenance to new construction sites. After a short spell at Barnsley Council in highway maintenance and some aspects of winter, I joined Doncaster MBC in 1991.
As an engineer working in highway maintenance, winter service was part of the job and I became involved with thermal maps, weather stations, forecasts and subsequently winter service planning and decision making.
Moving into highway asset maintenance as senior engineer, dealing with asset management and programmed maintenance works, I also deal with the winter service policy, planning and overseeing the provision of winter services.
Currently secretary to the Vaisala User Group, a member of the NWSRG and have completed the IHE Professional Certificate in “Winter Services - Decision Makers and Managers”
