Waterman has a proven track record of delivering public realm and accident remedial schemes that successfully re-balance the allocation of road space between private motorised traffic, public transport and non-motorised users, whilst also addressing townscape and place-making aspirations.
Our highway engineers and traffic modellers work closely together to ensure schemes are truly optimised to make the most efficient and balanced use of available space in terms of usability, safety, sustainability and operational efficiency. We also work collaboratively with landscape architects where necessary to ensure that public realm designs also meet townscape enhancement and place-making objectives.
Our experienced staff can assist with a wide-range of specialist traffic management skills ranging from the design of traditional streets, traffic calming measures and public realm schemes to the development of area-wide traffic management proposals and initiatives. Where appropriate we will challenge established highway design approaches and standards if they are incompatible with wider objectives and sufficient justification for departure can be clearly demonstrated.
Our offices are equipped with the latest industry-standard computer junction modelling software and computer aided design packages, including 3D capability, which enable us to design and model proposed schemes to the highest standards.
We also have a team of fully accredited staff to undertake independent road safety audits of proposed schemes.
