Delivering an appropriate and sustainable transportation network for the 21st century is an exciting challenge. Atkins is committed to planning, designing and enabling our clients’ transportation programmes.
Transport is a vital element of enabling a functioning economy. As global demand to travel for business, leisure and to find work, transport infrastructure needs to cope with both the demands of today and the needs of future generations.
Connecting people with places is increasingly important in today’s economy especially in the face of a growing population. As global demand to travel for business, leisure and to find work surges, transport infrastructure needs to cope with both the challenges of today and the needs of future generations.
Around the world, our people are working on projects that help to shape the future of transportation – designing structures that connect cities and towns, managing highways assets and ensuring sustainable solutions really work.
Delivering a transport network fit for the 21st Century and beyond is great but not insurmountable. At Atkins, we work closely with our clients and partners across government, financial institutions, private developers and contractors to build efficient mobility systems that unlock long term economic growth while meeting important social and environmental benefits.
Whether it’s the improvement of strategic links, modelling pedestrian flows in town centres or developing information systems for public transport, we plan, design and enable solutions.
