The evaluation of
economic and financial benefits is a critical part of the
assessment of transport projects: it is fundamental to demonstrate
to the public sector that projects have benefits to society and the
private sector needs to make sure that it derives a financial gain
from its investment.
Our experts provide cost/benefit and financial
analysis of costs/revenues for new projects in the road, rail and
water markets. The benefits and revenues are usually derived from
an assessment of demand using transport forecasting techniques.
In the rail and water sector we evaluate the
value of grant applications made for improving existing facilities.
We also work closely with colleagues in planning and development
assessing the transport and economic issues relating to expansion
of towns and development of areas
