Urban development


At the outset, urban transportation plans centred on keeping traffic flowing smoothly and organising car parking, but nowadays they aim to reduce pollution, preserve air quality and save energy, by encouraging the development of public transportation and alternative ways of getting around (walking, cycling, etc.) and promoting a harmonious, balanced approach to urban planning (social mix, combined uses, etc.). In addition to performing traffic surveys, producing traffic plans and improving signage and parking, Artelia is now increasingly involved in public transportation projects (tramways, reserved-lane bus networks, rail services and multimodal hubs), while striving to optimise economic and environmental aspects for the community and meet clients' and users' needs.
