Professor David Johnson FREng

Director, DGauge Ltd

Professor David Johnson is distinguished for his exceptional innovations and system development in railway engineering. These have enabled larger trains on existing track, faster running, reduced maintenance and overhead electrification through tighter existing infrastructure than conventional analysis would deem possible. These developments add up to multimillion-pound benefits. His laser measurement and dynamic analysis have been the key to this in recent years.

Earlier in his career, Professor Johnson developed new methods and measurement systems to improve existing track by adjusting the ballast, leading to new and enduring standards in UK and USA. He has formed and run successful companies and contributed in academia and the profession.
