SRA have considerable experience of advising on local travel planning and offer a wide range of different techniques, along with advice on fitting these to purposes and budgets. One of the company’s core beliefs is that public consultation is not a ‘one-off’ event, but has to be built into the ongoing process of local transport planning if more sustainable objectives are to be met.
- SRA have worked extensively on projects to consult both local people and stakeholders about the design and construction of new major road and rail routes.
- The potential of Intelligent Transport systems is another area in which SRA have explored perception and behavioural impacts including understanding how people plan journeys and navigate electronic and paper information. One large research project involved a study of the navigation and use of the Transport Direct portal.
- Studies of parking are also a speciality, in particular disabled parking spaces and attitudes of the shoppers.
