SYSTRA’s vision is to transform towns, cities and regions by ensuring transport investment enhances people’s lives. Cities and towns are after all places to be enjoyed and transport can and should contribute positively to the broader experience and quality of urban life.
We work at all scales to help plan places, transforming streets, towns, cities and regions by planning, understanding, influencing and promoting transport solutions that enhance the places in which people live, work and visit. Our projects help facilitate social interaction, support local economies and reduce congestion.
By integrating site masterplanning with an overarching transport strategy we are able to ensure that new development is sustainably integrated into its surroundings and therefore is in a better position to gain planning approval. We work from initial site identification and representation stages through to detailed planning application submission.
We also carry out reviews that ensure existing cities, towns, neighbourhoods or high streets are performing as well as they could do, with transport seen as an enabler of wider social, environmental and economic growth. We work with our public transport and active travel specialists to propose deliverable and costed solutions.
