Momentum has appointed Deirdre Eogan as principal consultant within its specialist transport planning division.
Based in Dublin, Deirdre is a geography graduate and holds a Masters in Regional and Urban Planning from University College Dublin. She is an experienced transport planner, chartered town planner and member of the Royal Town Planning Institute. She has project managed a broad range of commercial development projects and works closely with clients, multi-disciplinary design teams and stakeholders to deliver sustainable transport solutions. Deirdre specialises in transport impact assessments to assess the impact of development proposals on transport networks, covering all modes.
Deirdre has also prepared and helped organisations to implement travel plans to encourage travel behaviour change towards smarter travel. In her role at Momentum, she will focus on advising Momentum’s existing clients as well as growing Momentum’s portfolio of work in Dublin.
Roy McGowan, Managing Director at Momentum said:
“Deirdre is a very welcome addition to Momentum’s team. Her experience will be of great value to our clients who choose to appoint a specialist transport planner to their projects. She is a great complement to Momentum, adding to the expertise already within our team which enables us to continue to provide the highest quality advice to clients and to take our services to a new portfolio of clients and projects in Dublin”.
Commenting on her new role, Eogan said:
“Transport plays a key role in Dublin’s economic recovery, however the city faces challenges which impact on transport efficiency, including public transport capacity constraints, traffic congestion and incoherent public realm for pedestrians and cyclists. With growth set to continue in the housing sector in Dublin and with further potential investment at key employment sites across the city, delivery of long-lasting improvements to the city’s transport infrastructure is key to facilitate growth. The engagement of experienced transport planners is essential to deliver effective and sustainable transport strategies that meet the needs of all stakeholders. I’m delighted to join Momentum and to be part of a great team delivering transport solutions in cities around the world. I look forward to helping clients achieve their visions and plans for new developments in Ireland and the UK and to driving the development of our Dublin office.”
