Understanding and unlocking the benefits of transport investment

Navigating through the challenges of delivering effective, efficient, and modern transport networks requires a range of experience and expertise. Using our extensive knowledge, we offer a comprehensive package of support that understands these complexities.  


We holistically evaluate the movements of people and goods within a given locality, determine the root causes of constraints, and establish the need for intervention. We utilise this evidence to determine objectives and produce strategies for enhancement, that take into consideration local challenges and national priorities.  

Scheme development 

We work alongside our clients and stakeholders to challenge perceptions, uncover unique insights, and develop creative solutions. We collaborate with design professionals to ensure a robust and inclusive scheme development process, encompassing multi-modal solutions and smart technologies. We produce feasibility assessments of local transport scheme measures and movement and access inputs into masterplans. 

Making the case 

We help our clients make the case for investment through development of business cases and economic impact assessments. Our approach is grounded in the assembly of robust evidence and in understanding strategic and local transport challenges. We determine the direct and indirect economic, environmental, and social impacts: helping to inform decision making and unlock funding and development.  

We provide advice to public and private sector scheme promoters of rail, road, port, airport and logistics schemes and have a detailed understanding of government guidance on valuing a wide range of transport impacts.  This includes the HM Treasury Green Book, Department for Transport’s (DfT) WebTAG and the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government’s (MHCLG) Appraisal Guide. 

Appraisals and Evaluations 

We work with central government departments, devolved administrations, local and combined authorities, as well as local enterprise partnerships (LEPs), conducting appraisals of funding submissions to advise on whether a project is worthy of investment.  

We also provide independent post-implementation evaluations to help our clients understand how their initiatives are performing and what impacts they generate.
