Mott MacDonald appoints Mo Moradalizadeh as transport technical director, Australia

Mott MacDonald has appointed Mo Moradalizadeh as a technical director in its Australian transport business. Based in Victoria, Mo will be responsible for leading the consultancy’s tunnel projects in Victoria and pursuing new opportunities across the country and wider Asia-Pacific region.

A chartered civil engineer, Mo has 28 years’ experience in the design and construction of major international tunnelling projects such as underground metro systems, road and high-speed rail tunnels, sewerage systems, hydropower schemes, declines for mines and intake and outlet systems for desalination plants. He joins Mott MacDonald from Aurecon, where he was technical director responsible for the delivery of tunnel designs for major infrastructure projects across Australasia.

Mo started his career at Mott MacDonald in 1990 as a tunnel engineer. During his early career he worked on the Heathrow Express Project, which consisted of two underground stations with 6km of twin running tunnels serving Heathrow Airport.

Commenting on his appointment and decision to re-join Mott MacDonald, Mo said: “I am delighted to be back with Mott MacDonald where I started what has been a fulfilling career in the tunnelling industry. I am looking forward to working with some of the best engineers in the industry and sharing my knowledge with colleagues in other parts of the world.”

David Johnson, Mott MacDonald’s regional managing director for Asia-Pacific, Australia and New Zealand, added: “There is a shortage of high-calibre tunnelling expertise in Australia. While specialists can be sourced internationally, our clients prefer local experts to lead their projects. Mo’s appointment will help us to continue to provide the very best outcomes for our clients as we continue to grow our transport business. We are thrilled to have a tunnelling engineer with such strong experience join our team.”
