His main focus has been the regeneration of both Manchester’s Piccadilly and Victoria stations and the multi award winning Ordsall Chord which connects the two for the first time.

The Ordsall Chord is a series of new bridges and viaducts in one of the most important sites in the history of the railway, adjacent to Liverpool Road Station which was the first passenger railway station in the world.
