At Transport Planning Practice, we regularly commission, manage and oversee transport surveys, including speed surveys, parking surveys, and detailed, general surveys collecting a much wider range of data. Our surveys are compiled by skilled professionals, using a mixture of manual data gathering and state-of-the-art equipment such as highly accurate radar speed measuring equipment and automated traffic counting.
About Transport Surveys
Transport surveys are detailed reports on the situation regarding transport in a given area. The type of data collected can vary significantly, depending on the type of survey being commissioned and the goals of the project the survey relates to. Some kinds of survey focus on one specific element, such as speed surveys or parking surveys. Other surveys aim to gather a complete, wide-ranging picture of an area’s transport situation including types and volumes of traffic, speed, junction counts, parking provisions, traffic calming measures and pedestrian counts.
The purpose of transport surveys will also vary. Sometimes, they are commissioned with little more in mind than getting a detailed and accurate picture of where transport stands within a given area. Often, however, they play an important role in preparing to carry out new developments and making planning applications. The detailed and accurate data that such surveys provide can play a major role in drawing up effective and thorough transport assessments and transport statements. These documents are essential for many planning applications, as they serve to demonstrate to local authorities that matters relating to transportation and the impact on local infrastructure have been properly considered and that the development would implement appropriate management measures.
Surveys by Transport Planning Practice
All data we gather and reports we provide have been individually compiled according to the unique needs of the project at hand. As such, you can be confident that you will have all the information you need, and in an appropriate format for your next steps whether that be simply an analysis of where things stand or a detailed transport assessment for a planning application relating to a major upcoming development.
Transport Planning Practice can not only help with all kinds of transport survey, but also with making use of that data by, for example, incorporating it into a complete and detailed transport statement or assessment.
