Fell is the new fellow at Amey


Amey has appointed Lucy Fell as account director for the Highways England Area 10 maintenance and response contract.

The 15-year contract, which went live in April 2019, covers the North West of England, connecting the cities of Manchester, Liverpool and the surrounding areas.


Prior to her move to Amey, Ms Fell (pictured) was the health, safety and wellbeing strategy director for Highways England, where her role involved embedding health and safety within the first Road Investment Strategy.

She also developed and led the implementation of Highways England’s five year plan, and before this was the health, safety, quality and environmental director for EM Highways.

Rob Allen, business director at Amey, said: ‘Our business is committed to continually improving how we work which includes keeping our people safe. Lucy has extensive knowledge and leadership skills in health and safety as well as experience building strong client and supply chain relationships; a wealth of transferable skills which will be invaluable in her new role.

‘Vision 2030 is our simple philosophy to have no-one working on, or by, a live carriageway by 2030. Behind this vision is a strategy built on capitalising technological advances to improve safety, which I believe Lucy will be pivotal in implementing on Area 10. I look forward to working with Lucy and the team to keep the roads running smoothly for our customers in the North West.’

Ms Fell added: ‘Having spent much of my career working in health and safety, I’m passionate about ensuring our people go home, safe and well at the end of their working day, while delivering an outstanding service for our clients and communities. Bringing Vision 2030 to life is a priority and I’m looking forward to implementing new ways of working and innovation to help us realise this.’

Having worked as both a senior practitioner and regulator across a wide range of industries including construction, chemical and nuclear, Ms Fell's experience and contribution to the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health was recognised when she was made its youngest global fellow in 2017.
