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 transport team works with a wide number of stakeholders in developing a transport policy and strategy, assessing competing demands for space and resources, as well as financial and environmental considerations.
Our clients come from national, regional and local government bodies, the NHS, and Higher Education, as well as private developers. We work with clients, at every stage, from the brief, contextual issues and desired outcomes, to the document recommendations.
The team uses best practice principles and methodologies for the assessment and appraisal process, incorporating good practice examples, as well as wide consultation and engagement with stakeholders. All modes of transport are covered, taking into account the needs of cyclists, car users and public transport. The final documentation is clear, succinct and suitable for purpose.
