Welcome to Transport Initiatives!

Transport Initiatives LLP is an independent transport planning consultancy, formed in 2005. Our four members all have strong in-depth knowledge of sustainable transport in general and cycling in particular.

We specialise in innovative ways of developing and promoting sustainable transport options, covering every step from initial strategies and audits to managing implementation and monitoring outcomes. Our clients include local authorities, national parks, development bodies, Government Departments, train operators and anyone else requiring practical and achievable sustainable transport solutions.

The Transport Initiatives team mainly developed their skills working in or for local authorities. They contributed to the work of Cycling England between 2005 and 2010. Our team are internationally recognised as being experts in their field.

Wayfinding in Hinckley 

Transport Initiatives, in partnership with David Lock Associates, has recently competed the design of a wayfinding scheme in Hinckley. Part of David Lock's Hinckley Town Centre Public Realm Strategy Masterplan, it consists of a mixture of legible city type monoliths and more conventional fingerpost signs. Like many towns, Hinckley had a mixture of "heritage" cast iron signs, standard highways aluminium signs and bespoke systems where developers had done their own thing. Destinations were inconsistent and needed to be updated to include places that were being regenerated. The masterplan allowed us to bring a consistency to the destinations on the signs, and in the next phase a consistency to their appearance. 

We're working on this: Against the flow in Cambridge

Transport Initiatives has been commissioned by Cambridge City Council to investigate the safety of contra-flow cycling on one way roads in the city. We'll be using our innovative mobile camera methods to study cyclists' interactions with motor vehicles, other cyclists and pedestrians on roads with no marked contra-flow lane. Previous work by TI suggests that cycling against the flow of general traffic shouldn't be a problem but it is nice to be given the chance to measure it properly. We'll also be seeking the experiences of local cyclists.
