Dale Jones: Project Engineer (Developments), Network Rail
I’m an assistant Project Engineer at Network Rail, working in the Northern Programmes team covering the development portfolio. I’m in a systems engineering role, which I’ve been in for a year, predominantly working on Northern Powerhouse Rail. As part of this I’ve been involved with the early development of requirements for the programme and engineering assurance. I’ll be giving a brief overview of what Northern Powerhouse Rail is in the presentation, along with an overview of the other programmes within the development team.
