A significant part of TRM Engineering consultancy relates to urban planning assignments and projects relating to Local Administration transport planning and management studies.
Within its territorial planning area TRM Engineering is also active in the drawing up of Urban General Traffic Plans (PGTU) and Urban Mobility Plans (PUM), backed up by purpose-designed methodologies developed over the past few years on GIS platforms.
To efficiently carry out its work, the analyses performed by TRM Engineering are based on in-depth studies within the territory, with the aim of optimizing identification (both quantitatively and qualitatively) the phenomena linked to mobility and parking. The data required to draw up accurate PGTU / PUMs and to subsequently evaluate the proposed actions may be divided into two sets; one relating to the description of mobility (transport demand) and the other to the characteristics of existing (transport offer). TRM Engineering’s structure and know-how allows it to carry out all types of data collection required optimally and rapidly. Accordingly it is able to provide (via graphical, statistical and numeric modeling analyses) a wide-reaching informative framework which is both in-depth and up-to-date covering the situation under examination.
Within territorial studies, thanks to its technical structure, TRM Engineering is able to face topics ranging from traffic movement, to parking policies and development of infrastructural development to safeguarding the mobility of cyclists and pedestrians (taking account of multidimensionality, as provided for by law,). If necessary, macro/micro simulation models will be developed to evaluate proposed mobility actions drawing upon the use of the latest and most advanced software.
In drawing up PGTUs and PUMs, evermore attention is being dedicated to the aspect of highway safety via the analysis and redesign of urban spaces in compliance with Traffic Calming planning criteria. The work carried out is thus not limited to defining general (and often generic) strategies, but extends up to a higher level of specification (Detailed Plans) so as to be able to deliver project solutions to Public Authorities which can be effectively implemented.
The project phase is completed with the Street Hierarchy Regulation and definition of the functional classification of the road system which forms an integral part of the PGTU. The function of the Street Hierarchy Regulation is to regulate every artery of the road network, so that it may perform the function foreseen by the Functional Classification of roads. Accordingly the work carried out will be aimed at defining the traffic components included, at the organization of junctions involving roads of the same and of differing categories, at the organization of parking and at the occupation of public land.
Lastly TRM Engineering supports the Local Administration in all the presentations of the Plans to the public, supplying all the materials needed to correctly share the project with local citizens (background questionnaires, surveys, round-table discussions etc) and with the aim of creating the maximum level of consensus possible between various stakeholders (a problem which has always accompanied any action which impacts upon urban mobility and organization of parking).
