Transport Planning

Planning transport services in a strategic manner allows for investment in road, rail and intermodal transport projects to be maximised.  At Tonkin Consulting, we offer services across the lifecycle of transport projects. We have expertise in transport that is demonstrated through our involvement on a number of projects ranging from small-scale projects through to complex solutions.

At Tonkin Consulting, we offer a multi-disciplinary team with over 60 years of experience servicing a range of clients. We have built a reputation as provider of choice for several local government organisations. These relationships have proven to be pivotol in the successful delivery of complex infrastructure projects.

At Tonkin Consulting, we have developed a range of capabilities and services for the safe and efficient use of road and transport systems.
