Peter has been involved in many high profile major bridge projects including the award winning: Gateshead Millennium Bridge; MediaCityUK Footbridge across the Manchester Ship Canal; the landmark Twin Sails Bridge, Poole, and the iconic Queensferry Crossing on the Forth estuary.

Peter was overall Design Joint Venture Project Director of the £1.35b Queensferry Crossing project in Scotland, one of the world’s largest cable-stayed bridges. He was responsible for leading the design and supervision of the works, reporting directly to the Joint Venture Board. With around 150 people working on the design at its peak, in four different design centres, in four different countries, establishing clear communication is vital. Peter takes an open, collaborative approach to ensure all the teams within the design joint venture work together effectively.

After almost 30 years working on high-profile bridge projects, Peter has a deep understanding of technical issues, materials and structural forms. He has built cable-stayed, arched, beam, and tension bridges, and worked in concrete, steel and timber. Peter’s portfolio of projects includes highway bridges, rail bridges, footbridges, opening bridges and major bridge crossings. While many of his projects have been new builds, he has also delivered bridge strengthenings and refurbishments.

Peter Curran is International Bridge Director within the Civil Engineering Group of Ramboll in the UK. He joined consulting engineers Gifford (now Ramboll) in 1983 as a graduate engineer, became an Associate in 1996 and a Partner in 2005.
