Transport Safety

Our market-leading expertise supports research, recommendations and advice on safety factors. We provide the critical insight and data that contributes to commercial and government sector mobility and transport projects and informs public safety decision-making and legislation. Our work ranges from large-scale strategic planning using the Safe System approach to road safety audit, education, campaigns and training.

Keeping transport users and workers safe as they use any mobility network or means of travel is of paramount importance. TRL’s strategic, evidence-led approach provides a trustworthy foundation for planning and design.

Our clients come to us for technical assistance, reassurance, guidance and solutions to optimise the safety of their users and citizens.
