Using value capture to fund infrastructure makes infrastructure investment more equitable and productive.
Ben is an economist who specialises in cost-benefit analysis together with business cases and regulatory impact statements. Ben has led and managed economic analyses for a range of major infrastructure projects across the world including work on HS2 in the UK and Etihad Rail in the UAE. He primarily works in Frontier Economics’ transport, urban economics and water practices.
Ben’s interests extend to research in public policy and strategy. He led a research project which included collaborators from Melbourne, Dubai and Singapore, with expert input from Monash University’s Public Transport Research Group entitled ‘Defining success: what does success look like for a transport network?’ He has also developed guidance related to cost-benefit analysis and business case development for clients including NSW Treasury, Building Queensland and Infrastructure Australia.
Ben is also active in pushing sustainability. He co-authored a journal article called “Sustainability in infrastructure planning” which the Australian Water Association published. He also led on developing an economic theme for version two of the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia’s Infrastructure Sustainability rating tool, which embeds sustainable economic thinking into infrastructure planning and design.
