Traffic engineering

Traffic volumes continue to increase, as a direct response to growing populations and expanding communities. Atkins traffic engineers harness a sophisticated array of strategies to keep traffic moving efficiently and safely including technologies, models, and simulations.

An effective traffic signal control system is an integral part of successful traffic operations and management programs. Today these systems use a wide array of technologies and approaches to keep traffic moving efficiently through our cities, towns, and communities. They rely on sophisticated communications media, protocols, and architectures that demand an unprecedented level of knowledge and understanding from the transportation professional. Effective strategies and timing plans require knowledge and experience with state-of-the-art simulation and optimization models.
