Driven by a passion to work innovatively at all times, Maple Consulting was created by Chartered Waste Manager and Chartered Environmentalist Martin Lamb, to provide fresh-thinking support services to the transport infrastructure industry.

A major contributor to the Forever Open Road programme, which aims to rethink how roads are designed, built and maintained, Martin has a proven track record of project and programme management expertise in a variety of fields spanning almost 20 years.

Experienced in the delivery of cutting edge road and light rail concepts, Martin’s work with Forever Open Road has significantly furthered research into the delivery of future concepts including intelligent road studs, a prefabricated light weight track bed for UK Tram, and many more practical applications set to benefit both sectors.

As editor, author and co-author of a wide range of conceptual documents released within the transport industry, Martin is also a proven thought leader and has published extensively in his technical field.

Also highly experienced in consultancy, research and development, and in contracting on behalf of multiple foreign partners for high value European projects, his career to date has led to the formation of a specialist consultancy dedicated to uncovering and promoting greater infrastructure sustainability, resource efficiency, and adaptation to climate change and extreme weather events.

Its focus firmly on innovation at all times, Maple Consulting exists to build on this extensive technical expertise – and on long-standing relationships with research institutes, large engineering consultants, contracting organisations and multiple road authorities across Europe – and to provide a continuously forward thinking approach for the benefit of the transport sector.
