Transport Planning and Strategy

Is your activity centre as attractive and accessible as it can be? Does the amount of activity and space constraints lead to congestion? Could your activity centre be more economically viable and resilient?


Phillip Boyle & Associates works with clients in all aspects of land use and transport integration to create healthy urban and regional environments. Our goal is to enhance the attractiveness and accessibility of Activity Centres, so that more people use these spaces more often and local economies are more resilient.

We devise solutions that are cost-effective, practical and easily implemented. Our smart design of transport networks and their integration with the public realm has resulted in significant improvements in centre productivity.

We have the knowledge and capability to manage all stages of activity centre and growth area planning. Our experience includes key planning and technical roles for government in Australia and overseas, in urban and regional settings.
