Speaker : Ian Stewart


Scotland TranServ’s Ian Stewart has been at the sharp end of one of the harshest winters we’ve experienced in years. When the Beast from the East came calling, Ian helped to lead the charge as the best in the west tackled the Baltic blast head on.

Whether it was deploying snowblowers in support of counterparts in Dumfries and Galloway, or grabbing a slice of the action as the OpCo’s unimogs hauled lorries on the M8, M77, Ian and the team of Scotland TranServ 100-strong winter operatives were on the frontline.

Ian utilises all his 25 years’ experience to train not only Scotland TranServ staff, but workers across the industry, as part of the company’s training programme. From New Roads and Street Works to Winter Service courses, Ian is training the next generation of road operatives.

When he’s not behind the wheel of a 32-tonne Schmidt spreader, he’s inspiring future engineers through Scotland TranServ’s STEM education activities with primary schools.
