Mott MacDonald's work in delivering metro systems is backed by a complete range of technical and economic services in transport and urban development planning. With our extensive experience in transport technology, we're ideally placed to provide all design and development services for metros and other transport systems.
We work closely with our customers from the outset to deliver their specific policy, operational and business objectives. Our consultants have undertaken studies for both public and private sector clients to assess existing and proposed transport networks, optimizing route alignments, advising on the feasibility and demand, revenue forecasting, and the economics and financing of such schemes.
We understand the interactions between transport and other facets of life. Our access to strategic land-use/transport models allows us to advise on the strategic effects of transport plans in terms of modal split and accessibility. We can model the operational effects of transport plans at a network level and their impacts on air quality, noise, vibration, and other aspects of transport-related nuisance.
We have a proven track record in managing human factors from the beginning of a project through design, implementation and operation. We incorporate all aspects of the operator’s involvement, including allocation of function between operator and equipment, display and control system design, communications facilities, work place layout, operator workload, and conditions of the working environment.
Among our projects is a commission for London Underground to address the psychological factors of staff and passengers in crowded underground stations as well as the flow of passengers that could be expected through stations and facilities.
