Sarah holds a Masters in Transport Planning and Engineering from the University of Salford, UK. Over a period of 13 years, Sarah has worked on a range of transport planning/engineering, travel demand management and sustainability projects through her time spent in the United Kingdom (with Capita Symonds Ltd), Australia (with Jacobs and RAC WA) and more recently the Middle East with WSP and where she is now presently employed by the Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC).
Sarah’s experience includes technical input and project management of transport and mobility plans, master plans, policy documentation, active travel assessments, development control, transport impact assessments, road corridor studies, public transport studies, feasibility studies, project management and assisting with stakeholder/community consultation. This experience has been within both private sector and public sector employment.
In her current role at the MOTC, Sarah is the technical reviewer for the Qatar Trip Generation and Parking Rates Manual, Package 1: Data collection of the Update of the Qatar Transportation Master Plan and Package 2: Assistance Consultancy Services.
In her role at WSP, Sarah was the Project Manager for the MOTC project of the Qatar Standards for Accessible Transport planning and design manual.

During her time with RAC WA, Sarah led the route feasibility studies for Australia's Driverless Vehicle Bus trial, namely the Intellibus.

The trial is and continues to be a great success.
