Continuously increasing demand for improved mobility is facing safety, environmental impacts, urban restrictions and limited resources.
These complex interactions need innovative transport planning approaches that take into account the whole variety of transport modes.
Pöyry provides all services required for comprehensive integrated transport studies and master plans that seek to develop future strategies across all modes of transport. This approach includes factors for sustainable urban development, safety, environmental and financial feasibility.
Our multi-disciplinary services support the full range of transport planning, from the very early conceptual stages up to day-to-day operation.
Plans and concepts assist in decision-making, and subsequent support helps in developing and monitoring implementation and successful operation.
Our team of traffic engineers, urban planners, social and environmental experts, transport economists and civil engineers work together in order to solve client challenges.

Implementation & Monitoring
Pöyry supports its clients in all realisation phases, from implementation planning to preparation of tender documents, valuation of offers, the awarding process and, finally, monitoring during construction and initial operation phases.
Our experts utilise their years of experience and know-how in contract management and project co-ordination in order to implement and monitor all projects in the most effective manner possible.
Experienced construction supervisors ensure efficient monitoring during the construction and initial operation phases.
Finally, our economists calculate the efficiency of each project with ex-post evaluations.
Integrated Transport Master Plans
Transport master plans for metropolitan areas must take into account the integration of land use and mobility growth policies.
Pöyry makes use of its extensive knowledge in all modes of transport, as well as the know-how of mobility experts, in developing integrated transport master plans.
Our expert teams use a multidisciplinary approach and state-of-the-art software tools to provide multimodal transport planning and infrastructure needs analysis that meets future traffic demands.
Our outcomes are affordable, efficient and environmentally sustainable plans that best meet client needs.
Multimodal Transport Studies & Planning
Multimodal transport studies are an ideal approach to developing integrated transport strategies, as long-term solutions for regional or wide-ranging transport issues are found only by examining how all transport modes work together.
The quality of Pöyry's studies depends on the quality of the primary data.
Depending on the scope of the project, we plan and carry out any kind of traffic data collection, including manual and automatic counts, permanent traffic recordings, speed measurements, video monitoring and floating car data (FCD) monitoring.
Professional software packages are used for the analysis and documentation of the collected data.
We assess future traffic demand based on traffic, land use and economic parameters. For long-term planning horizons, we forecast the key figures by carrying out model calculations or trend prognoses.
Environmental impact and economic efficiency are crucial aspects when assessing capital investment activities in traffic infrastructure.
Our evaluation methodologies, such as cost-benefit analyses, are adapted to each survey question. We support the decision and approval procedures and provide the basics for priority rankings, funding and capital investment plans.
Telematics & Logistics
International division of labour and globalisation are the driving forces for increasing demand, but smaller shipment volumes.
Pöyry's services for telematics and logistics include strategies and operational concepts for control centre systems as well as for data communication networks to improve the networking and operation of multimodal freight traffic centres and logistics operators.
We have proven expertise in urban logistics, parcel service surveys, development of fleet management systems and telematics applications, supply chain management as well as information management for the port industry.
Our experts can also provide public transport, vehicle fleets, and ports and inland navigation solutions utilising our telematics solutions.
Traffic congestion can be limited or avoided by implementing traffic-actuated systems for speed control, weather warning, lane control, ramp metering and alternative routing. We offer the complete range of relevant engineering services, from primary data collection to site supervision and ex-post evaluation.
Microscopic simulation of traffic flow is one of the most important tools for planning and evaluating structural measures and telematics applications.
The powerful software packages we use produce comprehensive and complex traffic engineering analyses as well as 3D presentations.
The fast development of electronic media has created an abundance of possibilities for public relations, on one side, and user-oriented, customised representation of traffic information, on the other.
We develop websites and presentation CDs in HTML and Flash. Dynamic information can be edited graphically or can be embedded (for example, in XML).
The coordination of all regional and municipal traffic systems is a prerequisite for intermodal transport. In order to realise new concepts, a range of concerted strategies is needed.
Pöyry can assist in developing and implementing these strategies. Our consulting services are practical, professional and highly targeted.
Video systems are becoming increasingly important for monitoring traffic situations as well as for automatic measurements.
We plan customised video systems that suit client needs, including camera locations, data transfer technologies, energy supply, ground works, video control centres, operator stations, intelligent control and data evaluation.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are applied when geographic, or spatial data, is related to object data. GIS enable our clients to conceive and administer the complex spatial relations between individual data sets and to create new information.
We offer our clients comprehensive GIS solutions, from data collection and digital mapping to complete road information systems.
From complex traffic networks to single junctions - we offer signal control solutions, independent of suppliers. Our services include planning of traffic engineering equipment, development of traffic-actuated signalling as well as the entire procurement procedure, from invitation to tender to site supervision. We have available different planning tools for simulation and testing.
For parking, our services comprise the identification of current parking demand in public areas, public and private car parks as well as analysis of search traffic. We identify the demand on the basis of existing and future structures and types of use. With this background, we elaborate parking concepts with suggestions for parking control measures.
