Mobility and infrastructure
In our work under the heading Mobility and Infrastructure we examine the (environmental) effects of mobility policy, carrying out studies on topics like speed policy, modal shift, parking policy and infrastructure policy.
We have substantial knowledge on the interrelationships between traffic policies, infrastructure, spatial planning, traffic volumes, modal split and environmental impacts. We can assess the impact of policy measures on government revenue and expenditure, air quality, noise, climate, traffic safety, accessibility, the quality of public space and more besides. In all of this we never lose sight of the long-term effects and the tensions that often exist between the various targets involved.
Our work on this theme is focussed on the following areas:
- Continued development and improvement of know-how in the field (spatial planning - infrastructure - traffic volumes - environment).
- Development of methodologies to integrate the environment, in the broadest sense, into decision-making on infrastructure projects.
- Incorporation of environmental arguments in concrete infrastructure projects by carrying out Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) and Strategic Impact Statements (SEA).
On this theme we work for a wide range of clients, from the European Commission and European Parliament (including a review of the TEN-T policy) to local and regional authorities. For the latter we translate local climate targets into sustainable mobility strategies, for example, and then into concrete measures at the municipal level.
