Engineering activities are connected with over 65% of Australia’s Direct Greenhouse Gas Emissions.
After more than 30 years in the transport planning and traffic engineering industry, Dick started his own business in late 2017.
The focus is on Active Transport (AT) and Road Safety. The underlying philosophy is to create a healthy planet, people and places.
Dick’s background involves working with State, Local Government, industry and consulting agencies. He has a strong drive to bring out innovative transport planning and traffic engineering solutions in often controversial policy environments. He is well known for his extensive research into traffic calming, bringing fresh ideas from The Netherlands to the attention of the Australian traffic and road safety profession.
Dick was closely involved in Active Transport projects in most of the Sydney Metropolitan LGAs as well as regional Councils and many other agencies around Australia. He was directly involved in over 300km of pathways in Sydney, such as the Bourke Street Cycleway and the M7 Western Orbital Shared Path.
Most recently, Dick led the research, design and consultation for Bicycle Boulevards in WA, SA and QLD. He also led the research and preparation of walking and cycling guidelines for NSW, QLD, ACT, Austroads and Qatar. He was closely involved with a range of AT-rail integration studies, including station/stop access, bike parking and demand assessments.
