Xavier Brice will take up his new role this June, having come from Transport for London, where he has worked on the “Fit for the Future Stations” programme – a controversial modernising scheme that has been the subject of industrial action by staff unions in recent weeks.
Mr Brice also designed a new cycling strategy for London, which led to the introduction of the Cycle Superhighways and Cycle Hire Scheme.
Sustrans said of the appointment: “Xavier is passionately committed to sustainable transport. A lifelong cyclist and public-transport aficionado, he is a long-term Sustrans supporter with a garage full of bikes of various shapes and sizes.”
