Our traffic modelling expertise enables us to optimise signal timings to minimise delays and address the needs of all road users, including pedestrians and vulnerable road users, especially cyclists.
We develop individual junction models and network-wide micro-simulations that assist local authorities to assess the impact of proposals and increase junction and roundabout capacity to reduce delays.
For new junctions, we can provide a full traffic modelling analysis to determine operational capacity, and hence the most suitable junction layout. We arrange, specify and manage surveys on behalf of our clients, ensuring that they get best value.
We pay particular attention to the safety of cyclists, as two thirds of cycle accidents occur at junctions, with the most severe involving heavy goods vehicles.
We also have experience of installing the latest technology, including infrared and microwave cycle detection equipment and introducing off-line traffic signal facilities for cyclists where appropriate.
Project Centre has designed all the signalised junctions associated with the Exhibition Road and the South Kensington area network improvements as well as upgrading signalised junctions in preparation for the Olympic Route Network.
