Peter Mann has been the service director for transport at Bristol City Council since 2010 having previously spent more than 20 years in Oxford at the City and then County Councils in various transport planning and management positions.
He played a key role in the development and delivery of the Oxford Transport Strategy and the emergence of bus operator partnership working within the highly competitive market in the city.
Since his arrival, Bristol has introduced its first residents’ parking scheme, new 20 mph speed limit areas, completed the Greater Bristol Bus Network and Cycling City investment programmes and designated a major new Enterprise Zone around Temple Meads station.
The city’s major MetroBus rapid transit proposals are now in delivery and significant progress is being made on the MetroWest rail project to create a high frequency local rail service in the Bristol area.
Peter works closely with his co-heads of transport at the other West of England authorities who together provide support to the now well-established Joint Local Transport Board for the sub-region.
