"I’ve worked with Michael on a number of complex development projects over recent years, as part of a team of consultants brought together and retained by a major PLC. I’ve found him to be extremely professional and offered advice that has been both precise and concise in finding solutions to challenging highway issues. I have no reservations in recommending his services and have already referred him to other key clients who have also benefited from his technical skills and attributes."

"I have worked with Michael Summers in relation to transportation matters on a variety of proposals ranging from new village settlements and major housing projects to waste recycling facilities and golf course/hotel developments.

Michael’s attention to detail and his commercially pragmatic approach to transportation matters has helped resolve a number of very difficult issues on various projects.

As a consequence, I have had no hesitation in highly recommending him to clients both established and new.

He also has an ability to make the most complex of transportation issues seem simple, which is hugely helpful in influencing the understanding of clients and fellow consultants."

"I have worked with Michael Summers in our respective commercial capacities where I represented a client body and Michael was our adviser  on highways for a complex town centre mixed-use scheme.  Michael proved invaluable as a team member and contributed positively throughout the process.  His advice was well thought through and he always had an eye to the requirements of the client, the needs of the selling agency and also the rest of the design team.
I would be happy to work with Michael in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending his inclusion in a team where transportation advice is required."
