The key to India’s station redevelopment programme

23 March 2017

Many of us use rail stations daily, but how often do we stop to consider their role beyond their basic function of going from one point to another?

Whether large or small, they play an important role in the social lives of our cities. They can be meeting places, places to shop (and increasingly to collect online purchases), places to eat and drink and even places for temporary events. In fact, as libraries and town halls are so rarely built these days, stations and interchanges have become one of the last remaining opportunities for civic place-making.

Movement Matters is a series of inspirational seminars, debates and workshops, presented by Steer Davies Gleave, exploring how transport shapes and influences places, people and economies.

Making the money go further

22 February 2017

With the eye-opening scale of some of the transport transactions we are involved in, perhaps we think once the deal is done, the excitement is over – and the asset just runs. But the new owners of the infrastructure will now face significant expenditure over the life of the contract, making sure that the asset continues to perform as required and is fit for hand back at the end of the concession.
