In facing up to traffic congestion, capital intensive and time consuming schemes, such as road construction, must be viewed as a last option.
Optimising the sharing of road space between users is the subject of new models being developed to enhance the overall efficiency of existing transport systems at little or no cost.
Road construction is increasingly seen as a “last resort”. It is capital-intensive, time-consuming and creates traffic congestion.
We take an integrated approach that considers all stakeholders, including public transport, freight, emergency vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles. We strive to develop a systematic methodology that identifies the most effective options to split road space between different users.
