Peter Cushing

Metrolink Director
Transport for Greater Manchester

Peter spent many years in road and air freight operations at Board level prior to bringing his experience and expertise to the rail industry in 2000.

Peter then gained experience in the rail industry and has operated in two heavy rail TOC’s as a Director between 2000 and 2005.

He was part of the team involved in the DfT’s remapping of the heavy rail network and has also worked on several rail franchise bids, winning three.

Peter worked with TfGM’s Metrolink team on a long-term interim basis from 2007 to 2012, overseeing existing day-to-day operations during the current £1.8 billion expansion programme.

Early in 2013 Peter became the Metrolink Director at TfGM, responsible for the expansion programme delivery and the on-going operation of the Metrolink network.

Peter is also a Director of UK Tram and Chair of the Promoter Group within UK Tram.
