Beverley Bell, former Senior Traffic Commissioner for Great Britain, has received a CBE for services to road safety and the freight industry in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

Beverley had served as a traffic commissioner for 17 years and was appointed Senior Traffic Commissioner in 2012, where she replaced Phillip Brown.

She left the post in May this year and has been replaced by Richard Turfitt, though a spokesman for the Office of the Traffic Commissioner confirmed to CBW that she still remains appointed as a Deputy Traffic Commissioner.

Beverley is also a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport and a fellow of the Society of Operations Engineers.

In the position as senior traffic commissioner, Beverley was responsible for the regulation of bus, coach and goods vehicle operators. She was also responsible for calling operators to a public inquiry to examine concerns about vehicle and driver safety.
