Shaping Rail Strategy

Creating a compelling case to prioritise your rail investments.

Our passion is helping clients to turn a vision for new rail services into compelling, credible rail strategies, to help you win the support of industry and secure funding.

There are now tremendous opportunities for local and regional government and local enterprise partnerships to shape rail strategy and initiate rail projects that drive economic growth.

To successfully navigate this environment, engagement is needed at strategic level with the Department for Transport, Network Rail and train operators, demonstrating compelling evidence and proposing innovative approaches to risk sharing.

Our experienced rail professionals review the strategic role of rail in your region and the specific ways in which it would support people, communities and economic growth.

We develop strategies that take into account local opportunities for growth and constraints, expressing them in terms that the rail industry and central government will understand and respect.

With our financial expertise, we can develop innovative funding models including public, private and shared ownership.
