Territorial and Transport Planning

Project work on strategic and transport planning is performed using special software PTV Vision. Analyzing the transport systems of cities and regions, experts of NIIAT carry out work on optimization, forecasting, ordering, storage and transport of data visualization. PTV Vision combines a complete software package for the analysis, prediction and managing of traffic. The scope of work performed by the specialists of the Institute is vast: from preparation projects of organizing and analyzing traffic patterns at intersections and roundabouts, up to the studies of complex transportation systems of cities and regions, including the creation of advanced integrated transport concepts for the private and public transport.

The draft Federal Law "On traffic management and on amendments to certain legislative acts of the Russian Federation"

The main purpose of the law is to create a legal environment for effective and smooth implementation of traffic on the territory of the Russian Federation as an essential condition for sustainable transport system of the Russian Federation.

The objectives of the law are also:

  • To promote the introduction of advanced technologies and standards in the transport planning, organization, operational management and traffic regulation;

  • The development of a modern transport infrastructure.


Project "Development of a comprehensive scheme of traffic management in the urban district of Voronezh"

In 2011, the works were carried out on the formation of the baseline data for the development of a comprehensive scheme of traffic management, including: study of legal and normative-technical documents, comprehensive survey of transport, pedestrian and passenger traffic, the survey of deployment of technical means of traffic management and the basic parameters of the transport infrastructure, special surveys of "narrow" and dangerous places. The identified problems were analyzed, on the basis of which the priority proposals on improvement of traffic management on some sections of the road network of Voronezh were designed. According to surveys which were carried out by using modern means of monitoring transport infrastructure, the first two phases of research developed:

  • 1. The scheme of traffic management in the urban district of Voronezh in electronic form.

  • 2. Topographic scheme of accident clusters.

  • 3. Data sheet of the road network of the urban district of Voronezh in electronic form.

  • 4. Data sheets of the deployment of technical means of traffic management: traffic signs and traffic lights in electronic form.

  • 5. Data sheets of stops and terminal points of the urban passenger transport in electronic form, including the results of photographic images of these objects and their parameters.


Project "Development of cycling in St. Petersburg"

In 2011 the Government of St. Petersburg approved the Transport Strategy for St. Petersburg until 2025, where, under the direction of the "Access to the transport system" certain improvements of urban routes for cyclists are introduced. The Committee on transport and transit policy is coordinating the development of cycling in St. Petersburg.

Based on the developed concepts the Government of St. Petersburg is preparing the draft regulation "On the development of cycling in St. Petersburg."
