We were commissioned by the World Bank Global Environmental facility to deliver the formation and implementation framework for the urban transport sustainable development strategy planning for the city of Changzhi, in China's Shanxi Province.

The strategy and scheme will help promote the development of public transit in the city, and hence mitigate the adverse traffic impacts on the environment as well as improve mobility in the city.
