Former Crossrail and HS2 chief takes role at nuclear developer who described Moorside as a “smart site”. The former chairman of Crossrail and HS2 will head up an advisory board for CGN UK – the nuclear power station developer which described Moorside in West Cumbria as a “smart site”. Sir Terry Morgan hit the national headlines last year, predicting that he would be sacked as chairman of the two major rail infrastructure projects amid growing criticism due to delays and cost overruns, before ultimately resigning in December. He has now become chairman of a new advisory board at CGN UK – the subsidiary of Chinese-state owned China General Nuclear. Former civil servant Sir Brian Bender – who served as a permanent secretary at the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and the Department of Trade and Industry – joins Sir Morgan on the board. CGN UK says the advisory board will include “leading British figures with huge experience of delivering major infrastructure projects and of working at the highest echelons of government”. It will provide impartial advice to CGN UK’s senior management on taking forward its plans to invest in new nuclear as well as renewables, said the company.
