Kieran Arter is an Associate at Volterra. He has twelve years’ experience working as a transport economist. He specialises in estimating the wider economic benefits of transport and other infrastructure.
Kieran has strong analytical skills and has applied these to the economic appraisal of a wide range of major transport projects. This includes the economic appraisal of Crossrail, Europe’s largest infrastructure project, helping to secure funding approval for the scheme. Has also worked on many other major rail schemes such as High Speed 1 and 2, Crossrail 2 and schemes in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and Qatar.
Kieran contributed to Arriva’s successful bid for the Northern rail franchise by helping to develop a new approach to rail demand forecasting, undertaking research and statistical analysis to improve the industry standard approach.
He has developed an in-depth understanding of the links between transport and development and has used Volterra’s Accessibility-Density tool to estimate the impact of transport schemes on population and employment in specific locations. Kieran has also worked on a large number of aviation, highway and sustainable travel projects.
Kieran previously worked at Colin Buchanan and Parsons Brinckerhoff.
He holds a BSc in Economics from the University of Bath, and an MSc in Economics from the University of Southampton
