A key element of an economy's success is the ability to transport people and goods, safely, efficiently and sustainably. Sweco’s transportation experts have what it takes to plan, design and construct transport systems that simplify people’s everyday lives. By designing everything from highways and bridges to intelligent transport systems, we improve accessibility for tomorrow’s society. Our team of over 250 transportation professionals located in twelve design centres across the UK, including our most recent office in Cork, Ireland operate across a broad spectrum of markets and clients at every stage of the project lifecycle from initial project planning to final scheme operation and maintenance. Our teams work collaboratively with our clients to deliver innovative, sustainable and cost-effective multi-disciplinary design solutions every day.
In today’s world where the volume of traffic on our highways is ever increasing, placing more and more pressure on our networks, it is imperative that we maximise route capacity and real time driver information to achieve safe and reliable journey times for all.
Sweco’s transportation technology team are highly experienced in designing intelligent transport systems and their associated power and communication networks and supporting civil infrastructure. As well as system design itself, our professionals inspect, test and commission systems during construction and into the operational phase.
Our ITS design capability covers all the elements of a managed motorway such as overhead gantry installations, variable message signs, CCTV cameras, road surface monitoring loops, automatic number plate recognition systems, city centre car parking systems and real time bus information systems for both national government agency and local authority clients.
