Bicycle and Pedestrian Traffic

In recent years, walking and cycling have become an important part of urban planning. Our traffic planning experts have been involved in this development, providing their core competences in this field. Our skills cover the promotion of walking and cycling, as well as a wide range of services in design, from strategies and promotion programmes to detailed planning.

 

The aim of the design is always to promote the sustainable development and sustainable mobility modes. We regard the promotion of cycling as one of the key issues for sustainable city mobility. It is an efficient travel mode from the point of view of the economy, health and use of space. Walking, in turn, is becoming a trademark of a busy and vital city life. Walking is already considered to be one of the mobility modes, however, the prerequisites for a city promoting walking are not only transport related. In order to create a comfortable environment that promotes walking, expertise in understanding the interaction between the city space and people is needed.
