Growth in traffic is causing increasing problems in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas. Congestion is forecast to at least double and possibly treble by 2021. Action is needed now to address this. The City of Edinburgh Council plans to create a world-class transport system for the city. To translate this vision into reality requires innovation and imagination.
We help to advise in delivering a number of major new transport projects for and around Edinburgh in the next 10 – 15 years, including the tram network.
The challenge is to bring congestion and pollution under control. While recent measures to improve public transport use have been successful, much bigger changes are needed to meet this challenge.
