Population growth. Urbanization. Road congestion. Rising real estate costs. Climate change. These are just a few of the reasons why we’re rethinking the ways of moving people and goods from Point A to Point B.
SNC-Lavalin has a long history in designing, building, operating and maintaining transportation networks—including roads, highways, rail systems and airports—and all the infrastructure that surrounds these systems. The breadth of our expertise allows us to be present throughout all stages of an asset’s lifecycle. It’s what sets us apart and makes us a choice partner in developing sustainable mobility solutions.
As communities draft new master plans and transportation targets to address today’s challenges, we’re finding increasingly innovative solutions to keep traffic flowing safely and greenhouse gas emissions to a minimum. For us, sustainable transportation is a key aspect of smart cities—and essential to preserving health and quality of life in major urban centres.
Sustainable solutions for all our transportation projects
For municipal, provincial and federal decision makers, sustainable development has become a central requirement for every transportation project. We help our clients meet their environmental, social equity and social efficiency goals. For example, we recommend the use of long-lasting materials, renewable energy sources, easily maintainable designs, green construction practices, and energy-efficient transit or active transport solutions that can reduce the number of polluting vehicles on the road—making land available for more public and green spaces.
These principles are applied in everything we work on, from municipal infrastructure, Canada’s busiest highways and bridges, to its most advanced light rail transit systems. We’re also proud to advise clients on how smaller initiatives— like bus lanes and transit priority signals and active transport infrastructure — can add up to significant benefits for the population and the environment. Our goal is to ensure that road, sidewalk, and bike path designs are as sustainable, friendly and accessible.
