In his new role at Amey, Peter will take over the management of the company's highways maintenance and management contract with Sheffield City Council. The contract delivers the upgrade and maintenance of roads, pavements, street lights and bridges across the city as part of a 25-year contract.

Managing Director for Amey's Highways Business Unit, James Haluch, said: "For the last few years, our Highways business has been focused on continually improving how we work - improving our service delivery, developing our customer experience strategy and keeping our people safe. Peter has extensive experience working in contractor, consultant and client organisations, and a proven track record of running successful teams with strong client relationships. I am pleased to welcome Peter to my Executive Team, where he will focus on working with our client team in Sheffield to deliver services for the local community."

Peter Bamfield added: "I am delighted to be joining James and the Highways Executive Team at an exciting time for the Highways business at Amey. Having spent the last few years working in the aviation and defence sector, I am looking forward to moving back to focusing on the highways sector where I spent much of my earlier career. The highways contract with Sheffield is a fantastic example of the benefits that investing in infrastructure can deliver for a local community, and I am keen that we continue to showcase how this investment can create better places."
