PÖYRY: Engineering and consulting firm Pöyry announced a restructuring on December 2, to focus on higher value activites including project management and management consulting.

As part of this, from January 1 the Transportation and Construction Services business groups will be merged into an Urban & Mobility business group. This will cover rail, urban transport, real estate development, construction management and motorway activities.

Pöyry said the change will exploit synergies in these sectors and 'respond to the increasing need for solutions driven by population growth and urbanisation.'

Transportation business group President Andy Goodwin has been appointed President of the Urban & Mobility business.
