Parsons Brinckerhoff to deliver transport strategy for London Borough of Bexley

Parsons Brinckerhoff, the international engineering consultant, has been awarded two long term contracts by the London Borough of Bexley, to support the delivery of its ambitious transport strategy.

Parsons Brinckerhoff’s work will help the Borough reduce congestion and collision ‘hot-spots’; improve safety for the travelling public and local communities; and encourage use of public transport, across the region. It will also assist the Borough in working with Transport for London to deliver the eight priority areas of the Mayor for London’s Transport Strategy (MTS).

Delivering the strategy is also an important element of regional regeneration plans, which aim to position the Borough as an attractive location for inward business investment and highlight the benefits of living and working in Sidcup, Bexleyheath, Erith and their surrounding areas.

Commenting on the award, Bob Bird, technical director of infrastructure at Parsons Brinckerhoff, said: “Our aim is to help the London Borough of Bexley to deliver a safer and more efficient road transport infrastructure for both the travelling public and local communities. To achieve this we will work closely with all stakeholders including the Borough engineers at a strategic level and existing traffic and road safety staff at a local level.

The consultancy’s four-year contracts cover all transportation and traffic engineering services and traffic data collection services in the Borough and are worth approximate £4 million.

Under the contracts, Parsons Brinckerhoff will undertake a programme of transportation and traffic surveys and safety audits. It will develop a range of ‘area’ and ‘corridor’ based transportation management schemes across the Borough.
