Transport Infrastructure

We plan, design, build and manage transport infrastructure, working closely with clients from across local and central government.

We have a long history of co-operation with government agencies and the organisations that supply transport infrastructure – such as airports, local and national roads and railways – as well as the various complementary services.

Our projects range from major national schemes - we designed Crossrail’s Royal Oak, Woolwich and Plumstead Portals, and are one of the leading consultants on the HS2 design framework - to local projects, such as LED street-lighting, that significantly reduce both energy and cost.

Our approach is based on undertaking a thorough assessment of the impact of what we are designing and delivering, including the social and economic effects, before deploying the very best in modern civil engineering technology.

Since 2005 our transport technology team has worked on Highways England’s Traffic Information System (HATRIS) which is used to monitor and report on vehicle journey times on the motorway and trunk road network. The system enables Highways England and the Department for Transport to identify trends and to design new schemes based on solid evidence of traffic flows.

We are also involved in developing and managing other important high tech schemes used widely in the UK’s transport infrastructure, including:

  • Active traffic management
  • Managed motorway systems
  • Road user charging and tolling systems
  • Tunnel control and monitoring
  • Real time passenger information
  • Technology enforcement systems
  • Traffic monitoring and control systems.

We provide the new Highways England asset management system and associated consultancy services for its road maintenance teams. The Streamlined Data Services (SDS) Lite system we’re delivering will enable highways maintenance teams to manage their highway technology estate, provide tailored reporting on asset performance, and use their own devices to manage highways maintenance projects by the roadside, increasing efficiency and accuracy of the process.
