This means looking beyond the core transport infrastructure itself, to how these choices will shape the economic uplift, urban development and social value of the system long-term. 

Our planners, engineers and designers provide a comprehensive place-based approach to assessing and designing railway route alignment options that maximise the social, economic and environmental benefits in line with the rail programme’s vision and objectives.

As part of this work we undertake thorough environmental impact studies to fully understand our impact on nature and communities on the route. We then provide recommendations to mitigate the negative consequences that often come with major infrastructure and devise schemes that increase the potential for positive transformation in the long-term.
