Business Consulting: Transport and Infrastructure

Elaine Daly Elaine Daly

Grant Thornton has extensive experience in the delivery of consulting and advisory services to transport and infrastructure clients both domestically and abroad. Our Business Consulting Transport and Infrastructure team have worked with a number of transport organisations in Ireland, serving private, public and semi-state sectors. We support clients to deliver on strategic, organisational and end user requirements by providing tailored advice, combined with international experience and expertise.

Against a backdrop of growing economic activity, rising employment and a population which is likely to reach five million over the next decade, transport infrastructure in Ireland is coming under increasing pressure. Evolving transport and political landscapes mean that infrastructure and operators are being challenged to provide an effective service that meets public needs, provides for economic and social development and encourages further Foreign Direct Investment (FDI).

In recognition of this, existing services must be optimised to achieve the maximum potential benefit. Investment will also be required to supplement this improvement and to establish infrastructure representative of a modern and sustainable transport system. It is critical that these investment opportunities are fully understood to ensure that projects supporting wider development strategies are pursued.
