Our expert advisory service provides clients with independent advice on economic and transport forecasting analysis in areas ranging from business case reviews to peer reviews of modelling reports and expert legal testimony.

We apply careful and detailed scrutiny to technical methods, ensuring the reviewed work adheres to industry standards and established guidelines. We base our advice on our extensive experience as practitioners and thought leaders in transport modelling and economics.

As part of our work, we stay abreast of the latest government guidelines and academic literature. Our team also has a detailed knowledge of the challenges inherent to real-world analytical projects.

We closely tailor our advice to the needs of our clients and to the context of the project.


Legal proceedings

Our team develops expert witness reports that detail our review findings. We also provide a nationally recognised witness to defend such reports in court.

Some of our past projects include:

  • Airport Link expert witness
  • Clem 7 expert witness


Peer reviews

We can provide clear findings and recommendations for improvements to previously undertaken work. Prior to reporting our findings, we read all available documentation and conduct targeted interviews under the direction of our clients.

Our advice is also valued by clients who require a second opinion.

Past projects include peer reviews of:

  • Cross River Rail
  • Brisbane Metro
  • MetroNet
  • Western Sydney Freight Line
  • High Speed 2 (UK)


Due diligence

VLC can provide technical expertise in a range of areas to support our clients’ mergers, acquisitions and valuations activity. We use our modelling, research and data analysis capabilities to provide an evidence base for an independent opinion on valuations of transport related assets and portfolios or to meet other due diligence requirements.
