Transport planning

BuroHappold’s transport planning team provides a wide range of services to both private and public sector clients. Our team values its client relationships very highly and considers them vital to the success of the project, be it local or international. Main areas of work include masterplanning, transportation studies and assessments, local transport planning, parking studies and network capacity assessments.

Working as part of our multi-disciplinary Infrastructure group, they provide the vital access key to unlock a new development. By maintaining open lines of communication through all phases of the project, the team are better able to bring the client’s aspirations and the architect’s vision to reality. Our team are also proficient at meeting tight budgetary and programme schedules and obtaining technical approvals from local authorities and statutory bodies.

Working in close partnership with clients, stakeholders and other professionals, our transport planners ensure that robust and sustainable solutions can be identified and implemented. They have extensive experience gained on a variety of developments, from new retail malls and mixed-use complexes to large urban regeneration schemes. Our solutions are always tailored to the individual requirements of each project.

Project

13/06/2014

Dar Es Salaam faces some key social and economic challenges as one of the poorest countries in Africa, with growing inequality despite GDP growth of 5-6% per year. There is a growing backlog of urban infrastructure requirements and transportation relies primarily on privately provided mini-buses. Water and electricity household connections remain low and 80% of housing is ‘informal’. In the past, masterplans for the city have not been implemented due to a lack of coordinated planning and inadequate resources.
