Transportation design

While we are increasingly moving towards an age where connections are as likely to be made virtually as they are physically, we believe that our highway infrastructure is still at the heart of social and economic development.

Our planning and design consultancy work involves developing solutions to enhance a transportation network’s ability to meet customer needs. From initial feasibility studies and preliminary design, through to contract procurement and supervision of on-site delivery, our technical design teams have worked with a variety of clients to develop the right solutions to service network needs.

Our design services deliver all aspects of transportation infrastructure and technology, for example we develop solutions for modernising highway networks, planning new roads, providing additional capacity and making the best use of existing infrastructure. Delivering best value, seeking cost effective sustainable solutions and advising clients on the best options for implementation and delivery is what we do best.

Our understanding of global transport needs, in-depth experience and exceptional mix skills make us a world leader in the development and design of highways infrastructure. We understand the vital role transport improvements have in ensuring safe and reliable networks, integrated transport services and accessible city centres.

Structures related to all modes of transport often require innovative solutions to produce designs which are cost effective and buildable as well as safe and durable. Complex analysis is often required to achieve structural efficiency and there is frequently a need to address aspects of design which are not covered by national codes. We have expertise in designing, checking, assessing and strengthening many types of bridges. We can also perform advanced analytical analysis where necessary to produce the most efficient design or to get the most out of existing structures.

Atkins has the experience and resources to deliver a solution to a transport problem from inception through to the final scheme selection, procurement and completion.
