Parking

Considering journeys from beginning to end is vital to any robust and effective 21st century transport system, providing sufficient parking and parking guidance is an integral component in saving time, easing congestion and improving road safety.

Effective management of parking supply can be a mechanism for controlling travel demand either through the absolute supply or the cost of parking.

Effective management of parking supply can be a mechanism for controlling travel demand either through the absolute supply or the cost of parking.

In other instances there may be a conflict between different groups of travellers for parking spaces. For example, a residential area may experience competition from parking from commuters to nearby employment sites or shoppers to shopping areas.

Provision of parking, especially multistory car parks, can be costly. It is important that the revenues raised amply cover the costs of the facility in addition to managing demand.

Other than parking associated with individual houses, our portfolio features off-street, surface level or multi-storey car parks available for use by all, but often subject to a charge.

  • On-street parking, along streets in urban areas which may be controlled by charges or permits, or free for all and private non-residential.
  • Off-street facilities associated with a shop or office or similar.

Increasingly parking is becoming integrated into urban traffic control systems with variable messages signs used to direct drivers to the most appropriate available parking in order to reduce the impact of circulating traffic.

Proven experience

Our engineers can help to design any of these facilities but our parking experts can also advise on the policy implications and financial benefits of different solutions. We also work with local stakeholders to ensure that solutions can be delivered without adverse impacts on residents and local businesses.
