Artelia designs and builds safe cycling and walking infrastructure, integrating it smoothly into its urban setting.
In the last few decades we have taken part in a number of urban and regional development schemes, in Denmark and France in particular, aiming to make travel safer and calmer by placing an emphasis on active modes (walking, cycling, scooter).
We become involved right from the design phase of such schemes, ensuring that footpaths and cycle routes are fully integrated into the overall travel plan. Our teams perform traffic surveys to coordinate private vehicle and public transport traffic, integrate these different modes into transport interchanges, and provide for dedicated, secure parking facilities. They also analyse user behaviour in order to ascertain cyclists’ habits and expectations and optimise developments accordingly.
We participate in the creation of linear infrastructure and structures dedicated to pedestrians and cyclists, ensuring that they are safe and pleasant to use (urban and regional cycle paths, pedestrian walkways and walking routes, footbridges and other structures enhancing continuity between modes of transport, etc.). We also build or adapt infrastructure (roads, bridges, tunnels, etc.) in order to incorporate active modes by adding pathways, cycle lanes, advanced stop lines, refuge islands, or modifications for disabled people.
