In today’s built environments, people need to be able to travel efficiently and safely, in order to live, work, and function as citizens in everyday life. Sweco’s transport planning team understand the need to balance the demand for access by car, while supporting and promoting more sustainable and active travel modes, in the development of transport infrastructure.
Our approach to developing integrated transport strategies examines how all modes of transport-pedestrian, bicycle, public transport, car can contribute to developing long term solutions to transport problems.
Sweco carries out studies for clients to inform the decision making process, whether making recommendations for access improvements to a new shopping centre on behalf of the developer, or an assessment of impact on roads to access new housing. We help achieve clients’ planning objectives, with robust, sustainable proposals.
Our work considers the needs of all forms of transport, including access, parking, cycle routes and changes to road layouts, as well as integration with public transport hubs. The team also has experience in planning and implementing communication and engagement activities as part of the project delivery.
