Robust, sustainable and well designed transport networks are vital to a strong global economy in the 21st century.
Ensuring people and goods are transported safely, economically and with minimum impact on the environment, are of paramount importance. Fuel prices, traffic congestion and the impact of motor emissions on our environment are influencing our society’s need for more efficient methods of transport that don’t empty our wallets or damage our planet.
Latest research and advanced technology in this area enables our consultants to provide best advice surrounding all aspects of road and railway transport, from reduction of traffic hazards and the introduction of cycle ways to improvements to car parking.
Our considerable experience in the design of cycle facilities throughout the Netherlands, alongside our UK experience in transport planning for new development, puts Royal Haskoning in a unique position.
