AECOM has announced Faisal Siddiqui as senior director, highway engineering for British Columbia, responsible for leading the local highway engineering team including structural and bridge engineering, road safety and traffic engineering, intelligent transportation systems, geomatics and surveys, as well as highway construction management and contract administration.

“We are thrilled to have Faisal join AECOM. His profound understanding of public sector challenges is a strong addition to our local transportation business,” said Bruce McCuaig, senior vice president and regional business line leader for transportation in AECOM’s Canada region. “He understands what’s required to manage and deliver innovative and safe transportation infrastructure that not only improves mobility, but also addresses today’s pressing resilience, sustainability and social equity issues.”

Prior to joining AECOM, Siddiqui spent 17 years with the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (BCMoTI) where he led the development of the multi-year Trans-Canada Highway four-lane program between Kamloops and the Alberta Border. He also led design and implementation of rapid transit services along Highway 97 between West Kelowna and the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan Campus.

Between 2018 and 2022, he managed design projects under the ministry’s Provincial Capital Program which varied between $50-100 million annually while also working as a senior engineering manager and director of highway design and geomatics engineering.

“I joined AECOM because of its global reputation for helping clients solve their complex infrastructure challenges and the firm’s commitment to leave a positive lasting impact on communities they serve and our planet,” Siddiqui said. “I’m looking forward to leading and growing the highway engineering team in BC and partnering with clients to deliver transformational highway projects that help communities thrive.”
