Carter Jonas has been a trusted property advisor to the transport sector for over 15 years and our innovative approach and experience working on large-scale schemes for clients such as Network Rail, HS2 and Highways England has enabled us to grow and invest in a core specialist team of transport experts.

This team works with colleagues from around the business to deliver a multi-disciplinary range of services to the transport sector – we are able to advise our clients throughout the lifecycle of their transport infrastructure projects and take a holistic approach to such projects, considering them in their regional or national context, in order to provide robust, strategic advice.

We have experience in all enabling powers through which major transport infrastructure schemes are normally promoted – Hybrid Bills, Transport and Works Act Orders, Highways Act or Development Consent Orders. From sponsorship, through public engagement, consenting, land assembly, compensation, to project management, we provide strategic and practical advice from inception right through to project completion.

We operate across a wide range of transport infrastructure projects including:

  • Heavy rail projects
  • Light rail, tram and guided bus projects
  • Motorways, trunk roads and strategic road projects
  • Port and airport development and expansion

Our services within the transport sector include:

  • Compulsory Purchase & Compensation
  • Geospatial & Referencing
  • Land Assembly
