Well-planned and efficient transport networks are the foundation of economic prosperity. They have far-reaching effects on society and the natural environment, and can be the catalyst for transformation of communities.

Through smart planning and collaboration, we work with our clients to make the right choices for their needs, finding effective and sustainable strategies that also improve quality of life.

Whether the project's objective is to create a prosperous downtown area through transit-oriented development (TOD), develop a waterfront, revitalize a neighbourhood, or plan for regional growth, our transport planning team can help you build a landmark that raises the profile of your project.

Clients need to create environments that meet the needs of all stakeholders, and we work hard to find effective and sustainable strategies from the earliest stages of development.

WSP has extensive experience in all aspects of urban and regional transport planning, growth management and the creation and maintenance of civic infrastructure.

We’ve developed master plans, studies and analyses for complex infrastructure programs to smaller community-oriented projects, and we can unlock development land previously considered uneconomic or challenging. Our wide range of planning services are based on rigorous procedures for studying and assessing problems of any size and scope, enabling planning for all transportation modes.
