Former North-East traffic commissioner ‘will be missed’

  • 24 September 2012
  • By Roger Brown

Keith Waterworth, who earned a reputation for being a firm but fair traffic commissioner (TC), has died aged 69.

Waterworth was initially appointed as TC for Scotland in 1990 where he served for three years, before becoming TC for the North East in 1993.

He was then appointed as the TC for the North West in 1996, but following a period of illness, took early retirement in 2000.

Waterworth, who died in his sleep on 11 September, is survived by his widow Judith.

Beverley Bell, senior TC, who succeeded Waterworth as commissioner for the North West, said he will be missed by all of the staff who knew and worked with him as well as by the TCs who served with him.

She added: “Keith Waterworth was held in very high regard by the industry and his fellow commissioners.

“He was robust in his work at public inquiry, using them to deal with serious cases, but he was also visible as a regulator, encouraging joint agency working, attending roadside enforcement checks and contributing to educational road shows.

“Despite his illness Keith continued to travel extensively throughout both of his traffic areas in his work often accompanied by cumbersome medical equipment – he refused to allow his illness to get in the way of the work that he loved.”
