Sustainable Transport Department (O22)
Department follows long-term research and development activities in the area of sustainable transport planning. It focuses on production of strategic documents as well as on application of tools for assessment and evaluation of parameters that influence sustainable transport planning. Our main activities include:
Production of strategic documents
- sustainable energy plans (such as SEAP, SECAP),
- sustainable mobility plans (such as SUMP).
Assessment of impacts on the environment and indicator determination
- determination of sustainable transport development indicators for calculations and evaluation of trends,
- assessment of climate change impact on transport systems, designing indicators and adaptation measures,
- evaluation of negative externalities from transport caused by excessive noise, air pollution, etc.
Sustainable transport planning and landscape fragmentation
- assessment and design of roads and their treatment in terms of movement of animals in the country,
- production of cartographic outputs and spatial analyses,
- consultancy in the field of Local Agenda 21.
Measurement and modelling of transport emissions and air quality
- alternative fuels,
- measurement of transport emissions from real driving and setting of emission factors,
- modelling transport emissions at national, regional and local levels,
- emission models for air quality studies,
- preparation of transport air quality studies,
- designing measures to reduce emission load in urban areas.
- accredited noise measurements of any road pavement by CPX method (Close-ProXimity) according to ISO 11819-2 (ISO/TS 11819-3, ISO/TS 13471-1),
- accredited noise measurements in non-occupational environment for medical supervision according to ČSN ISO 1996,
- assessment and design of noise reduction measures,
- production of an action plan according to directive 2002/49/ES,
- production of acoustic studies and noise maps for individual levels of project documentations and construction administration process.
See below further details of selected tackled issues:
