Traffic planning

Through our traffic planning expertise, we ensure efficient and well-functioning planning solutions for the needs of tomorrow. 

Through our traffic planning expertise, we ensure efficient and well-functioning planning solutions for the needs of tomorrow. 

We have extensive expertise in all stages of traffic planning from zoning to construction plans. We plan smooth and safe solutions for walking, cycling and public transport as well as all forms of motor vehicle traffic. Our strength is our capability to manage large-scale, integrated projects in challenging operating environments.

Our clientele includes cities, municipalities, government organizations, hospital districts and municipal education consortiums as well as industrial, construction and property development companies. We coordinate our work with architects and other design work experts. 

Traffic planning for land use and buildings

Our versatile traffic planning aims to take into account all modes of transportation in land use planning in each zoning phase and planning stage. The key elements of our traffic planning are promoting sustainable modes of transportation, acknowledging the special needs of residents, companies and others moving within the area, understanding the impact of changes in built environments and emphasising the feasibility of the required solutions. Similarly, assessing parking needs and planning efficient parking solutions are an integral part of a well-functioning built environment. Life needs mobility, and efficient transportation makes for comfortable living.

Traffic modelling and viability surveys

Traffic models and forecasts are essential tools in strategic traffic planning on the regional and general plan levels, as well as in the concrete space reservation planning for traffic management on the local plan level. We have the capacity to model and simulate the functions of all transportation modes, survey and illustrate mode of transport distributions in line with environmental goals, and assess the volumes of cargo or passenger trans-portation terminals and their effects on the functionality of the traffic network or the terminals themselves. We generate 3D virtual models, animated simulations, visual materials and impact reviews that meet the high standards of our customers.

Parking policy and parking planning

We are involved in planning efficient and correctly scaled parking area solutions that account for the impacts of new mobility services and other factors. Our planning covers both large-scale parking facilities and smaller parking solutions for housing companies. In the design of parking facilities and areas, we take into account both motor vehicles and other modes of transportation, including electric vehicles and their space requirements. The efficient use of parking facilities often requires the implementation of a well-functioning guidance system that may incorporate smart technology. Our experts have experience in designing these systems from several suc-cessful projects.

Pedestrians and cyclists

Walking and cycling are environmentally sustainable modes of transportation and an area of strong focus in modern urban planning. We provide surveys related to promoting pedestrian and cyclist routes, plan concrete measures and design modern street spaces that accommodate pedestrians and cyclists as well as bicycle park-ing arrangements that encourage eco-friendly modes of transportation. We incorporate major bicycle routes as a part of the guidance system encompassing the entire urban area and promote the attractive public image of walking and cycling as an integral part of the modern urban space.

Traffic management

The rational planning of traffic management is a cost-efficient way to improve the safety and smooth flow of traffic, reduce emissions and utilize route capacity more effectively. Traffic management solutions are a part of both larger road and street projects as well as smaller detached projects and surveys. Traffic management methods include guides and signs, digital signs and notice boards, traffic lights and their smart control systems, disruption management and alternate route planning, as well as various traffic services and data collection systems based on open data.

Traffic arrangements in construction work

The planning of traffic arrangements during construction work is required in all stages of building or infrastruc-ture construction. Occupational safety is the highest priority at each worksite. In daily worksite operations, the safety of the end customer, i.e. the road user, is an essential prerequisite in tasks that take place among traffic. In our planning solutions and monitoring service for traffic arrangements during construction work, we focus on the clarity and national uniformity of the arrangements, the changing needs and work phases at the worksite, schedules, flow of internal and external traffic, and the traffic safety of all modes of transportation
