My name is Roger Berrisford and I am the founder of the Isle of Wight Tramway Company
Limited of which Tranzwight is a specific project for the Isle of Wight.
Isle of Wight Tramway was formed some years ago following my involvement with a group
promoting conversion of the existing Ryde to Shanklin line to tramway operation,
with the potential expansion to other parts of the island along the original railway
alignments. Isle of Wight Tramway has established links with the light rail community
including vehicle and systems manufacturers, consultants and operators.
I have lived on the Island since the age of two and I worked for over 20 years with
GKN in their test and design departments.
My engineering background has included projects on the design and testing of aircraft,
rockets, railed vehicles and hovercraft assemblies.
At present I work in Bristol for Airbus as a configuration engineer commuting from
the island by train on a weekly basis and I have a very keen interest in all forms
of public transportation.
Thank you for taking the time to view this web site. We would be delighted to hear
from you with your comments about this project both for the Isle of Wight and the
potential if you live elsewhere in the UK.
If you are not on the Island and feel that Translohr could be evaluated for potential
deployment in your area, please contact me.
