When planning for traffic-generating facilities, planners are required to perform detailed traffic studies investigating the impact on adjacent and surrounding infrastructure. These traffic impact studies form the basis for planning and design of road infrastructure, parking facilities and lot accessibility, as well as the basis for decision-making and construction approval procedures within project-related land use planning.
The facility generated travel demand is forecast using standardized and validated calculation and estimation procedures. The resulting traffic loads are then added to the existing traffic streams and assigned to the surrounding road network using digital traffic demand models. A network capacity analysis is employed to quantify the impact of the planned facilities on existing infrastructure. This provides the basis for planning and optimizing the facility and external infrastructure.
With our services, we advise and assist cities and communities in the field of facility-related traffic planning. Equally, we offer these services to contractors, investors and architects in all traffic-related matters before and during the planning approval procedure.
