Road Design


We deliver long-term sustainable solutions for all types of highways, from local access roads to major urban and rural strategic routes. Our cost-effective designs improve safety, ease congestion and extend street and highway life.

We have a wide range of in-house engineering and consultancy capabilities to help clients with every aspect of their project life-cycle, from pre-feasibility studies and conceptual and detailed design, to contractor selection and site supervision.

Drawing from our skills across our multidisciplinary business, we offer a vast range of specialist services including:

Scheme Identification and Promotion

We can support clients in the private and public sectors to identify, evaluate and promote new transport schemes through their local planning and approvals processes. We have extensive global experience of the many approaches that may be applied to scheme promotion, procurement and implementation, which means that we are ideally placed to advise clients embarking on transport plans for the first time.

Road and Highway Design

Our experience covers every aspect of road design worldwide, from major new road-building programmes and widening schemes for existing expressways, to local network improvements including junctions, bus lanes, pedestrian crossings, cycle routes and traffic management programmes.

We also have specialist understanding of the requirements of designing and delivering unpaved roads in poor, rural areas in developing countries.


We have been involved in major projects worldwide and we have developed a comprehensive understanding of all forms of procurement used for transport scheme delivery. We can support our clients in whatever model they require, whether as part of a traditional client-contractor arrangement or working closely with contractors and other private developers to deliver Private Finance Initiative (PFI) and Public Private Partnership (PPP/P3) contracts.


Our road and highway teams are highly experienced in managing the financial and contractual aspects of construction, and our services include contract planning and administration, cost and commercial management, site attendance, construction supervision, construction auditing and institutional advice.

Operations and Management

We manage national highways, city streets and local road networks for clients worldwide. We can deliver services such as road maintenance, road network management policy and implementation, and asset management. We have expertise in both the strategic management of networks and resolution of local maintenance issues. We are also skilled in helping clients procure contracting services and in developing forms of contract that are most appropriate to local requirements.
