SWAISH  Consultancy Services

I established Swaish in 2014 to provide the Traffic Technology Industry with expert and focused Consultancy Services.

I worked in the Traffic Technology and Control Industry for 30 years with the Highways Agency and its predecessors. I have much experience in acceptance and approval including functional certification against specification, approval testing including EMC and environmental and live trials both on and off road.

I was a PRINCE II Practitioner, which I never allowed to get in the way of sound project management. When I realised my fees would no longer be paid for me I retired as a member of the IET.

Professional Experience - Please see the section of the site covering this subject.

Professional Representation - I was an active member of the BSi 509-11 Committee for Road Variable message traffic signs. Through this I was involved in ensuring the European Standard (EN 12966) reflected the requirements of the United Kingdom. I have also presented papers at the ITS Enforcement Interest Group.

I have contributed to a selection of regulations and guides including the Design Manual For Roads And Bridges and TSRGD (The Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions) together with numerous specifications and policy documents.

In my spare time I enjoy walking the dog and doing whatever Mrs W tells me to do.
