WSP has been appointed by the UK’s Transport for the South East (TfSE) to develop a transport strategy that will help unlock growth in the region.
For the next 18 months, WSP will work with Steer (formerly Steer Davies Gleave) to develop a strategy up to 2050 in a bid to deliver increased productivity.
Adrian Hames, director at WSP, says the company will use its future scenario toolkit to inform the modelling work needed to develop the new strategy.
The transport strategy will consider environmental and ecology aspects as well as bring together 16 unnamed local authorities and five local enterprise partnerships.
As part of the framework, WSP will be the leading consultants on future mobility and freight logistics.
