Mark Philpotts

Areas of Expertise

His local authority work has seen him lead on a diverse portfolio of local highway improvement programmes including walking, cycling, bus stop accessibility, casualty-reduction and traffic management. He also has substantial experience in highway development management and highway structures management. Mark’s key area of professional interest is how we can design streets to enable people to walk and cycle, with a strong emphasis on inclusivity, accessibility and sustainable safety principles which is something his role with Sweco UK Ltd has given him the opportunity to specialise in. He owns a Christiania cargo-tricycle which has taught him a great deal about inclusive cycling design which he combines with his engineering experience as a member of the Beyond the Bicycle Coalition, a group representing users of non-standard cycles used by disabled people, families and for cycle logistics. Mark is also the principal author of CIHT’s “Designing for Walking” and a contributor to “Planning for Walking.”
