Richard Bradley has a career spanning multiple disciplines in both private and public sector. He has spent the last 5 years working for sub-national transport bodies and currently heads up the strategy team at Midlands Connect, having previously worked for the North and South East.
Richard has helped develop more robust and compelling evidence to support regional investment programmes and policy direction. Whilst focused on physical mobility, this is increasingly considering the impacts of digital connectivity and spatial proximity, and more holistic, cross-sector outcomes.
He leads the development of traditional business case evidence as well as more contemporary evidence in response to changes to the Treasury’s Green Book. He is also leading the development of pathways to 2050 that target a fairer society, protect the environment and develop a greener economy, as well as explore more trusted ways to track progress.
Richard also leads the development of route-maps for the future of mobility, including innovative approaches for key aspects of decarbonising transport in the Midlands and how the Midlands can operate together more effectively. This is being drafted into an emerging connectivity strategy that will deliver evidence for decision makers to 2025.
