02/02/2017 Highways Reporters
Jacobs has been awarded a two-year contract by Transport for London to provide integrated impact assessment (IIA) services to support development and finalisation of the revised Mayor’s Transport Strategy (MTS).
The MTS is one of the key plans for the mayor to establish its refreshed policy framework and strategic direction for London's transport to meet projected economic and population growth.
Jacobs is providing assessment of the potential environmental, health, equality and economic impacts of the proposed new strategy, including specific topics such as community safety.
“The MTS is a central part of London’s preparation to support sustainable growth across the capital,” said Jacobs Buildings and Infrastructure Senior Vice President Bob Duff. “We’re delighted to work alongside the TfL and Mayoral teams at the forefront of the strategy’s development in assessing, consulting on and finalizing the MTS.”
The company says the award enables a continuation of the relationship it established with the TfL team during delivery of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) IIA in 2014 and 2015.
