Transport Master Planning
Vertix’s team of industry-leading transport planners have helped to design some of the largest and most complex developments in Singapore and elsewhere around the world, including Resorts World Sentosa. We understand that the experience of a development is closely linked with efficient and intuitive access and circulation.
Our approach always starts with understanding the underlying objectives for a project, identifying the design parameters and profiling end users to best provide a tailored transportation solution. We develop multi-modal solutions to cater for the unique needs of everyone’s chosen form of transportation; private car, public transport, bus, walk or cycle. We carefully analyse the expected volumes of each mode and ensure that designs carry flexibility to cater for changes over time.
We believe that it is our responsibility to ensure that user’s movement is considered right from their entry into the site, circulation, parking and then the pedestrian environment. We utilise the latest modelling and analysis tools to assist us with the recommendation of appropriate solutions along with many years of experience.
Traffic Design Services
On all major projects, Vertix’s senior or principal engineers engage the design teams throughout the design process, working with the architects to ensure that vehicle and pedestrian circulation as well as optimal car parking design are fully integrated into the development design. We believe that the best developments seamlessly integrate a high degree of functionality, with optimal space utilisation.
Working closely with the design teams from site layout through concept and scheme design we can optimise multi-modal access (vehicular, public transport, pedestrian and cycle) in parallel with engaging LTA and progressing the approval process. This helps to remove any unnecessary spend on circulation or GFA.
Some examples of projects where we have adopted this approach include SIT University, Mandai Nature Reserve and Woodlands Integrated Health Campus.
Transport Facilities Design
We work with architects to design all transport components to a development, including:
- Internal roadway layouts
- Carpark layouts
- Pedestrian and bicycle connections
Vertix has an experienced team of traffic engineers and often combines traffic engineering services with traffic impact assessments / transport planning. Vertix’s traffic engineering services include:
- Safety Audits
- Traffic Diversion Impact Studies
- Vehicular circulation swept path assessments using AutoTURN
- Parking studies and design
- Circulation analyses
- Advisory Services
Vertix use industry leading tools such as AutoTURN and microsimulation modelling to evaluate and optimise transport designs. From carparks to development access points we can help to design, evaluate, improve, and optimise transport facilities.
In addition to these services, through our strategic partnerships we can provide a full range of engineering services.
