The development of new (and improvement of existing) transport infrastructure, especially rail, can be the catalyst for regeneration of the surrounding area as well as the station itself.
From over-station development to the creation of retail centres and public spaces, more and more often we are seeing regeneration as part of investment in transport hubs.
The provision of improved public transport is integral to the sustainability of proposed new development, making the areas around stations ideally suited to increased density of housing, without increasing the need for private cars.
Our team’s understanding and experience of the operational requirements and challenges faced by transport infrastructure providers comes from our years’ of experience in working with clients including Network Rail, HS2, LCR and TfL as well as many local authorities. We are skilled in providing the business cases for public sector investment in new transport infrastructure and implementation strategies based around land assembly, viability and funding and the creation of public/private partnerships.
