About Our UK Mobility and Infrastructure Advisory Group:

In 2020, Royal HaskoningDHV and ITP joined forces, making available a deeper, richer source of skills, resources, ideas and experience to our clients.  The coming together of the two companies has created one team with a shared culture, where knowledge, curiosity and creativity flourish.  We challenge each other to achieve our shared ambitions of Enhancing Society Together and Improving the Way the World Moves.

As would be expected in a team which puts sustainability and social responsibility first, in all our work we bring stakeholders together to produce value-added outcomes that enable future-proofed safe and healthy travel for everyone while minimising the use of natural resources.  We see ourselves at the forefront of a transport revolution, where people and our needs are at the heart of planning and designing solutions that address the major issues that affect our communities and the wider planet.  Our approach is inclusive, informed and challenges the status quo, helping our clients to achieve their objectives and to contribute to a more sustainable future.
