A Tenby man is part of a team that has received an award from the British Quality Foundation for delivering a rail project successfully.
Chris Titterton of Tenby and his two ex-colleagues Dan Quant and Russell Parish were very proud to receive the BQF award for ‘Excellence in Project Delivery Infrastructure’ at the London Hilton Bankside Hotel on October 5.
Chris has been Head of Quality for Crossrail for the ten years it took to construct the Elizabeth Line beneath Central London. At that time it was the largest Civil Engineering project in Europe.
Our late Queen Elizabeth II opened the Elizabeth Line on May 17, 2022, a once-in-a-generation stunning addition to the UK transport network.
The Elizabeth Line is a true masterpiece of engineering, and has transformed travel across London and the South East by dramatically improving transport links, cutting journey times, providing additional capacity, and transforming customer experience, adding £42bn to the UK economy.
The fully joined up railway was opened earlier this year on May 21.
Chris lives in Tenby, with his wife Sheila and three children. His grandparents ran the Prince of Wales Hotel in Upper Frog Street from 1953-64, and his father is an old Greenhillian, Geoff Titterton.
The couple’s three triplets James, Emilia, and Sofia, are in their first year at Greenhill School, and are active in the Sea Cadets and Tenby Sailing Club.
