Road Safety Consultants

A comprehensive understanding of road traffic legislation and engineering standards through a multi-disciplined approach allows our road safety consultants to offer continual advice and support throughout the design process, and undertake road safety audits on completed schemes.

Our road safety auditors are all certified to carry out audits on the United Kingdom strategic road network, and Trans European Road Network. The team are experienced on a wide range of projects from small developments, to major highway improvements and tram works.

Expert Sweco advice during the design process can greatly improve operational road safety standards, particularly for those more vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists.

Our road safety services

We have worked on projects ranging from single pedestrian crossings for local authorities to trunk road and motorway schemes, including more recent innovations such as managed motorways.
