Government policies dictate that in order to manage road congestion within our growing cities, more use should be made of public transport, rather than the private car. We are committed to the facilitation of world-class public transport infrastructure in an attempt to redress apartheid planning and the poverty trap created by long distance commuting. We have extensive experience in the field of public transport infrastructure provision.
We have won numerous awards for our BRT projects and have co-authored sections of the Institute of Transport Development Policy’s (ITDP) International BRT Guide.
HHO undertook the conceptual planning, detailed design and implementation of this award winning bus rapid transit project, which incorporated approximately 32 km of dedicated bus lanes, 34 bus stations, 4 terminal bus stations, 2 bus depots and a feeder network with over 500 bus stops.
HHO undertook the conceptual design of this 16 platform terminal station, in order to satisfy the operational requirements of the BRT system, as well as to mitigate adverse impacts to traffic due to the introduction of the station and dedicated bus lanes leading to it.
HHO was appointed by ITDP to update infrastructure related chapters of the International BRT Guide. HHO provided input into chapters on busway placement, signal designs and NMT design, as well as project management, cost calculation and value engineering.
