The UK’s National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) has added an ex-Crossrail boss to its roster.

Michèle Dix will take up the role as a new commissioner at the independent body which charts the course of UK infrastructure. Next week, the commission will publish its second National Infrastructure Assessment.

An industry veteran, Dix has previously been director of planning at Transport for London and managing director of Crossrail 2. Most recently, she has served as a non-executive director of Crossrail International and at the Major Projects Association.

Chair of the NIC Sir John Armitt said that Dix “brings a wealth of knowledge of the transport and planning spheres, and she joins us at an important time just as we publish the second National Infrastructure Assessment”.

Dix will take up her role on 1 November 2023.
