Transport Planning & Assessments
RPS has the key skills and experience in the provision of transportation infrastructure services to meet the challenges of the future.
We are faced with the challenge of finding smart and innovative solutions to transport and movement problems – providing solutions which will support development and economic growth in the context of a sustainable society. We work with public and private sectors alike to develop plans for sustainable transport systems to assist in the delivery of development and planning applications. We integrate the work of our traffic and transport planners and highway engineers with our land use planning and environmental teams.
RPS is a long established industry leader in the preparation and negotiation of Transport Assessments (TA). RPS assess and mitigate transport impact based on relevant guidelines published by the Department for Transport, Welsh Government and Transport Scotland and where relevant, Transport for London and individual highway authorities.
We make sure that the coverage and scope of our TAs are appropriate to reflect the scale of the development proposals and the extent of their transport implications. National and local policy requirements are also reviewed to ensure the development proposals and any required mitigation measures accord with them where appropriate.
