Assessing economic impact

Strong transport links are a key factor in economic development. Understanding their importance helps improve policy and investments.

We are experienced in assessing the economic benefits generated by transport projects and have particular expertise in the role that air connectivity plays in encouraging regional economic growth. We understand data and modelling requirements and have developed effective and innovative techniques to assess the micro and macroeconomic impacts of different infrastructures.

We have carried out a range of assignments for transport infrastructure providers, such as airports and airlines, trade associations and government bodies. Our studies have looked at the economic impact of a specific investment, at alleviating a particular constraint or considering the wider economic impact of an activity. The economic impacts can be local, national or pan-regional.
