Transport Planning

 Over 14,000 dwellings master planned

 As transport planners we provide a variety of services in this area.

 Master Planning

Master planning is shown to add significant value to a project, and transport planning is a key input into a Master Plan.

We assist our clients to plan new development areas with master planning, structure planning, transport planning, and the design of street networks. This work is often a precursor to a Plan Change or Plan Variation to rezone an area of land.

After understanding what the goals of the project are we collect data about the transport environment and identify the opportunities and constraints for development, particularly around access between the site and the wider road network. We then work collaboratively with urban designers, planners, and engineers to iteratively develop a cohesive plan for the site.

We have considerable expertise in the design of street network layouts and cross-sections, particularly in large residential subdivisions, and to date we have helped plan over 14,000 residential dwellings plus considerable areas of commercial and industrial activities.

  •  Structure planning
  •  Plan changes and variations

 Travel Planning

Addressing traffic congestion is a significant task in our larger cities, and it won't be solved by building more wider roads. Our work in this space includes working with site owners and operators

  •  Travel Demand Management
  •  Travel Planning
  •  Parking demand management
  •  Alternate travel modes

 Surveys

We undertake a variety of surveys to provide increased understanding of the problems we are solving. These include:

  •  Traffic counts of volume, direction, speed, and vehicle type
  •  Turning movement counts at intersections
  •  Parking demand
  •  Trip generation
  •  Travel behaviour and attitudes
  •  Intersection performance
