What is a Transport Assessment?
Transport assessment is a study that evaluates how a proposed development may affect the transportation network and identifies measures to reduce any negative impacts. It involves analyzing current transportation patterns in the area, as well as potential changes like increased traffic, altered parking demands, and modifications to pedestrian and cycling routes.
What is a travel Plan?
A travel plan is a document that encourages sustainable transportation and reduces reliance on single-occupancy vehicles for a specific location or development. It aims to improve access to transportation options and promote modes such as walking, cycling, and public transit. Travel plans may include measures such as secure bicycle parking, carpooling promotion, and improved pedestrian infrastructure. They offer benefits like reduced congestion, air pollution, and healthier communities, and are often required by local governments as a condition of planning approval.
What is the lead time for the assessments & reports?
It depends on the project size, but usually it takes 2 to 3 weeks to prepare our reports.
What is the difference between Travel Plan and Transport Assessment?
A transport assessment is an evaluation of the impact of a proposed development on the transportation network, and identifies measures to mitigate potential negative effects. It typically focuses on analyzing the transportation needs of a development and assessing the impact on the surrounding transportation infrastructure.
On the other hand, a travel plan is a strategy that gives how people will travel to, from, and within a development, with the goal of reducing the reliance on single-occupancy vehicles and encouraging sustainable transportation modes like public transit, walking, and cycling.
A travel plan can be developed in conjunction with a transport assessment to ensure that the proposed development is designed to encourage sustainable transportation and minimize negative impacts on the transportation network.

However, in general, a transport assessment is typically required for developments such as large residential or commercial buildings, industrial facilities, or new transportation infrastructure projects like roads or railways.
What is a Car-free development?
Car-free development refers to an urban or suburban area that is designed to be entirely car-free or with minimal car use, and instead provides infrastructure for pedestrians, cyclists, and alternative transportation options such as public transit, car-sharing and bike-sharing services. The aim of car-free development is to reduce negative impacts on the environment, improve livability and promote sustainable modes of transportation.
