A key element in a city’s attractiveness is the ability of its residents to travel safely and efficiently. Sweco’s infrastructure experts have what it takes to design transport systems that simplify people’s everyday lives. By designing everything from transportation hubs, roads for both cars and bicycles, railways and subways to bridges, tunnels, ports and marinas, we improve accessibility in tomorrow’s communities and cities.
Mobility is essential for ensuring an efficient urban environment both now and in the future. Mobility solutions must be designed to include vehicles, public transport and vulnerable road users, and, particularly in urban areas, higher priority is often given to creating better conditions for public transport and vulnerable road users. Sweco plans and designs infrastructure solutions that accommodate the needs and requirements sought by future generations.
Urban and traffic planning are essential tools in designing mobility solutions. Sweco provides consultancy in the planning of new urban areas and refurbishing traffic systems in existing areas.
We focus on the fact that urban squares and open areas – together with the surrounding buildings – are increasingly important to the design and structure of heavily trafficked urban areas and that these spaces are instrumental in establishing a city life that is brimful of diversity and variety, offsetting the often dominating role of motorised traffic in urban areas.
Public transport is classically defined as trains, metros and buses, but it encompasses much more than this. It involves getting from A to B efficiently and economically. Public transport is a complex system made up of many interacting components. Ensuring smooth transfer between various modes of transport is particularly important at transport interchanges, such as where bus and metro lines intersect.
Sweco provides advice on designing transport interchanges to ensure that urban mobility is enhanced through improved options for combining different modes of transport. Sweco assists in enhancing accessibility for the individual modes of transport, e.g. by establishing corridors for buses or designing signal control systems that give higher priority to buses, thereby ensuring smoothly flowing bus traffic.
