Kieran Arter is an Associate at Volterra, and has over eleven years’ experience working as a transport economist. He specialises in estimating the wider economic benefits of transport and other infrastructure.
His strong analytical skills have been applied to the economic appraisal of a wide range of major transport projects. This includes Crossrail, where he was part of the team that estimated the agglomeration benefits of the scheme, demonstrating the way in which Crossrail will enable higher density in London and therefore boost productivity and output. He was the project manager and lead economist for the business cases of High Speed 1 and DART Underground in Dublin.
Kieran has also worked on a number of development studies, and has recently led economic inputs on a bid for a development in Enfield, producing employment estimates for the development and making the case for the particular sectors of focus.
Extensive experience allows Kieran to adapt his skills to a range of projects; in addition to the above he has worked on the economic impacts of aviation, sustainable travel schemes, rail franchising (including Arriva’s successful bid for Northern rail) and risk analysis.
He holds a BSc in Economics from the University of Bath, and an MSc in Economics from the University of Southampton.
