Urban transport

Many major cities are considering various strategies aimed at reducing congestion. The trend has been to encourage a shift towards public transport, particularly buses, light rail, suburban rail and metros. Sustainability is an increasingly important consideration for both private and public sector transport operators and is being addressed in numerous innovative ways in urban transport networks globally.

There is still a great deal of road and highway development underway, both in terms of new developments and upgrades. It is important to develop and maintain routes linking major cities and urban areas by taking into account the relationship between transport, the environment, public spaces and people.

Innovation, creative planning and design are critical in developing and maintaining transport infrastructure cost effectively. A systematic approach is required to achieve the integration of the vital planning elements, and it is for this reason that urban transport is implemented through transport master planning. Master planning helps to bring different elements of transport into focus in an integrated, seamless manner.
