WSP’s Worldwide Expertise in Transit-Oriented Development
Our services include growth management, planning and design services for community development, and civic infrastructure. Our overall approach allows for regional planning, urban design, transit and landscape architecture, brownfield redevelopment and station area and corridor planning and design.
TOD has brought value to several projects around the world and allowed for the completion of needed public transport infrastructure. One of the best examples is Bond Street Station in London, where two booking halls to the underground station have been designed to accommodate valuable development above ground in one of the world’s most expensive real estate areas. The revenue from this opportunity has provided a significant contribution to the new transport scheme.
Another example is the new High Speed 2 line between London and Birmingham, which has created a new interchange at a brownfield site in West London. The transport plans resulted in the creation of a new development corporation to manage and act as planning authority for future regeneration. WSP has been involved not only in the planning and feasibility design of new stations, but also in the alignment and systems design for the new High-Speed line.
