John Merritt joins Arup as Adviser

image05 September 2018

Arup: We are delighted to welcome John Merritt to Arup as an Adviser. With experience as a Senior Victorian Public Service Executive, John brings to Arup a deep understanding of Australia’s transport and highways regulatory framework, strategic infrastructure planning and road safety policies, having most recently held the role of Chief Executive of VicRoads for the past four years.

My interest is in making communities work better and what attracted me to Arup is the firm’s tangible commitment to doing socially useful work, as well as its ability to apply an integrated approach to solving the biggest challenges faced by cities today. The firm’s adoption of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and its genuine commitment to them also aligns with what I hope I can contribute to in the wider transportation space. ”

John will work closely in the collaboration between Arup’s Transport teams and Australasia’s Government operations to strengthen the development of road user policies, long-term strategic project planning and outcome-led solutions across the transport network.

Prior to VicRoads, John held roles as the CEO of the Environmental Protection Authority Victoria, Executive Director of WorkSafe Victoria, and CEO of the National Safety Council of Australia.

John brings significant experience to Arup and we look forward to working together to provide strategic, integrated advice to our government and private clients on opportunities which better connect people and communities across Australasia. ”
