Kieran Arter is an Associate at Volterra. He has over 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 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. He 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.
Kieran is accomplished at adapting 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.
