Alejandro Moreno | Director
Midland Metro Alliance

Alejandro Moreno, Director, Midland Metro Alliance

Alejandro Moreno was appointed as Midland Metro Alliance Director in September 2016, to lead the alliance team of planning, design and construction specialists to build four new tram extensions across the region over the coming decade on behalf of the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA). 

Previously, Alejandro was the Managing Director for Central Europe at Colas Rail and prior to that, the general manager of Tranvia de Zaragoza – the public-private partnership responsible for the delivery of trams in Spain. His experience of delivering the catenary free sections of tram operations is a particularly valuable asset, as the alliance looks to spearhead that technology in the United Kingdom. 

The alliance comprises the WMCA, which owns the Metro; a design consortium of experts from Egis, Tony Gee and Pell Frischmann; and construction specialists Colas Rail – with Colas Rail’s sub-alliance partners Colas Ltd, Barhale, Thomas Vale and Auctus Management Group
