As an island nation, an efficient transport infrastructure is vital for Ireland’s economic growth. While significant progress had been made in bridging the infrastructure gap in recent decades, the transport sector is now faced with a challenging budgetary environment and a dynamic policy background. Increasingly, environmental considerations are becoming more prevalent as evidenced by Smart Travel initiatives and emission-based tax regimes. Against this backdrop, it is vital that resources are efficiently allocated, that investment generates the maximum return for stakeholders and that policy implications are carefully appraised.
DKM has considerable experience of transport markets and has been engaged in a wide range of studies across all transport modes – rail, road, marine and air. The company has a long history in project and programme appraisal, including appraisals as part of feasibility studies at the firm level and national ex-post evaluations for the EU.
