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.
We understand what is required in the planning and delivery of safe, efficient, reliable and attractive public transport services and are committed to encouraging behavioural change in achieving our client’s goals across a range of transit modes.
We support our national, regional and local government and transport operator clients throughout the project from the initial planning stage through to the consultation and business case stages. As multi-disciplinary teams working across a wide spectrum of public transport sectors, we are able to identify opportunities, appraise and design public transport systems, interchanges and hubs, as well as provide route assessment, travel market and network operational analysis services.
We use transportation modelling tools and passenger demand forecasting techniques to help optimise public transport networks as well as to promote and support policy initiatives, efficiencies in movement and environmental benefits. Working in accordance with national government guidance, we support the development of robust market and multi-modal transport appraisals and business cases to deliver public transport projects which provide tangible sustainable choices to how residents, workers and visitors move in, around and between our cities and communities.
With our strong European presence, in particular across Scandinavia and the Netherlands, we are in the enviable position to offer our clients expert advice in relation to safety, land use integration and technological innovation.
