Division of Sustainable Transport and Transport Structures Diagnostics
Division includes three closely related areas of expertise that deal with transport infrastructure and environmental impact of transport.
The first area focuses on rationalization of the design, construction, maintenance and repairs of roads and other transport structures and application of new non-destructive diagnostic methods. It also prepares background data for the technical policy, diagnostics and evaluation of operational and technical conditions. It also addresses legislation, standardization of technical regulations in the field of transport infrastructure.
The second department focuses on production of strategic documents in the field of sustainable transport in national and regional levels, as well as in the level of individual towns. Professional specialization of this department includes production of environmental parts of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP), issue of mitigation and adaptation in relation to climate change, issue of landscape fragmentation, modelling and measurements of transport emissions, and environmental acoustics.
The activities in the third department focus on transport impacts on air, soil, water, sediments, biome, as well as on composition of building materials and release of pollutants from them. They focus on production of methodological approaches, materials for legislation and technical regulations, perform contractual monitoring of environment quality indicators with results evaluation and design of measures to improve the situation. The department forms close cooperation with the Transport Research Centre Laboratory, which is equipped with top instrumentation allowing to find high quality solutions.
