            Traffic and Transport information

Deriving critical issues and a clear course of action from the get-go sets the tone for the remainder of the project. It allows us to provide targeted solutions in a quick and efficient manner.

The best traffic engineering project is one that no one notices. To achieve this, an in-depth understanding of existing project site conditions allows us to determine the most appropriate traffic engineering treatment(s). SALTs projects range in size and location from tight inner-city spaces to large greenfield sites in rural localities. The variation in intended use, existing condition and location of our clients sites often necessitates gathering of further information via site visits, that outline both potential impacts and opportunities specific to your site. 

We have significant experience in navigating statutory and policy requirements and relevant development plans/documents for your site. This ensures your priorities are met whilst simultaneously adhering to our rigorous engineering standards and requirements. This otherwise lengthy process is fast-tracked as members of SALTs’ team hold pre-qualifications on various panels and has numerous working relationships with:

  • Metropolitan and regional councils 
  • Traffic authorities (VicRoads, YarraTrams), and 
  • Infrastructure agencies 

Delivering your project efficiently and to a high standard.
