Eddisons makes trio of promotions in Manchester transport planning team

Property group Eddisons has made three promotions within its 15-strong transport planning and highways design team based in Manchester.


Mike Coogan, who joined the team in 2012, has become a director, while Jack Cunningham has been promoted from senior highways technician to senior highways engineer. Recent graduate Genna Woods, who joined Eddisons in 2022, moves from trainee technician to graduate transport planner.


Eddisons transport planning and highway design team was founded in 2011 as Croft and acquired by Eddisons in 2019.


Recent Eddison’s projects include advising Co-op Funeralcare on a series of new flagship care centres across the UK, with charging points at each location to accommodate the firm’s growing electric vehicle fleet and help the Co-op Group achieve its goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2040.


Eddisons is also a transport consultant on a 67-home residential scheme at Darlington Street in Coppull, near Chorley, which received planning consent in June, as well as recently beginning advisory work on a new Manchester faith primary school, the Olive School, part of the Star Academies group.


The firm’s highway design team is currently delivering the detailed design of the public highway works for Birmingham’s largest housing development, the 5,500-home Langley Sutton Coldfield scheme.


Partner Phil Wooliscroft, who heads the transport planning team, said: “Eddisons is committed to our team’s career development and to nurturing people and enabling them to fulfil their potential, which is also critical to the success of the firm. Congratulations to my inspiring colleagues, who all richly deserve these promotions.”


He added: “This latest round of promotions is an indication of the breadth and depth of expertise and service that we are able to offer our clients, and we expect to be making further new hires over the coming months.”
