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.
Sweco understands the competing factors, balancing the demands of road users with more sustainable and active travel modes, as demand on transport infrastructure increases.
Our transport economics team works with national, regional and local government bodies, as well as private developers. We often represent our clients as part of a multi-disciplinary project team on large highway schemes, guiding them from feasibility to detailed design through the DMRB Stage 1 – 3 process.
We support clients throughout the economic assessment process, in analysing the operational, economic and environmental factors of the scheme, using recognised appraisal methodologies and modelling tools, such as NESA, COBA and Quadro.
