New Capital Delivery Director for Wales and Western

Network Rail’s Wales and Western region has announced Tim Walden as its new capital delivery director.

Tim joins from the company’s Southern region, where he has served as capital delivery director since June 2022.

He was a driving force behind the completion of CP6 and has supported the creation of the Southern Renewals Enterprise, taking the region into CP7.

Under his leadership, major resignalling schemes at Victoria and Feltham reached completion, along with the Gatwick Airport Station works.

Tim replaces Stuart Calvert, who has become the role of capital delivery director for Network Rail’s Eastern region. Kayleigh Spires is currently interim capital delivery director for Wales and Western.

Regional managing director Rob Cairns said:

“There’s no doubt Tim will be an incredible addition to the leadership team and will help us to achieve our goals and ambitions for CP7.”

“I’d also like to offer my sincere thanks to Kayleigh Spires, who is currently covering the capital delivery director role since Stuart’s departure and has been doing an absolutely fantastic job holding the fort.”
