We understand transport’s vital role in connecting people, businesses, cities and economies. Our insights and expertise enable clients to realise optimal programmes and projects for rail, road, sea or air.


Driving efficiency and value in transport

In our increasingly urbanised world, authorities are looking to upgrade and expand existing networks, create new multi-modal transport hubs, enable greater mobility across geographic areas, and invest in city innovations such as driverless vehicles.

Such projects have many regulatory, political, environmental, and funding complexities that must be overcome through a clear focus on outcomes and benefits which support communities over the full life of the railway, road, port or terminal.

For rail, cost-effectiveness and safe, reliable railways are key priorities throughout the lifecycle, while in aviation, airports are focusing on how to respond to the demands of changing travel patterns while delivering shareholder profitability and supporting passenger confidence.

In the roads sector, cities are looking to reduce congestion and make more efficient use of road and transport infrastructure.

Our expertise in transport

We understand the complexities faced by transport organisations and programmes to deliver capital delivery projects, plan asset renewals and manage facilities over the full lifecycle.

We support projects by driving organisational effectiveness and performance, taking a whole life perspective and focusing on what passengers and clients value. In working with clients to define strategies, we support opportunities for future investment/funding, as well as developing the business case and programme.

Throughout the project delivery stage, we maintain rigorous control to minimise risk, while ensuring safety remains the priority.

Our long track record across the transport sector has enabled us to develop global benchmarking tools, drawing on project data spanning more than two decades.

Our expertise and tools provide cost insights and help to drive decision-making, innovation and savings for our clients.


We do not have ties to any design, construction or engineering team, so we approach every task with an independent mind-set.

The work Turner & Townsend delivered for this project has been instrumental in helping us build a safe and compliant airfield, at the same time as minimising or even eliminating some of the disruptions to aircraft movements that were previously unavoidable. Ultimately that’s delivering a great outcome for thousands of passengers every year, and we congratulate Turner & Townsend on having this important contribution recognised by the industry.
