Transport Planning

We plan transportation networks to make travel easier, more reliable and sustainable for communities across the world

The way people travel and goods move are changing.  That’s why we engage with communities at all stages of planning to ensure the transport options we develop will meet future needs and demand. AECOM use evidence-based assessments to develop transport solutions in a fast-changing world.

Whether it’s providing more capacity on our road and rail networks, improving accessibility in congested areas, developing options for safe and active travel such as cycling and walking, or facilitating efficient deliveries, AECOM’s multi-disciplinary transport planning team enables clients to make informed decisions on the feasibility of transport schemes.

Transport planning is crucial from the outset of project development. Our integrated team of engineers, planners, economists, data analysts, technologists and social and market researchers help develop plans for transport schemes whilst minimising their impact on the environment and delivering the best outcomes for the economy and communities.

Making a positive impact on communities through delivering social value is also a key part of our contribution, whether its promoting local skills and employment through forming new partnerships with local charities and social enterprises to directly support local needs or continuing to make social value ‘business as usual’ in infrastructure and the built environment.

We offer integrated, tailored solutions for our clients, bringing our global expertise across some of the biggest cities and transport hubs in the world. We support clients grappling with transport issues, imagine solutions and suggest realistic actions from sourcing funding through to contracting and implementation. We work hand in hand on schemes with our clients, fostering a collaborative working approach to achieve the best outcomes, whether that’s co-locating teams, developing workable solutions or utilising efficient digital technology.
