Addressing these complex challenges means having access to the right combination of technical ability and hard-won experience. Our transport specialists work closely with our economic and environmental teams to unlock all the opportunities your project presents.
BMT’s MTIA studies identify the primary constraints and necessary measures for safe & efficient marine infrastructure development. We adopt a structured approach following the IMO's Formal Safety Assessment methodology:
MTIA studies have supported the planning and design airport expansion and reclamation, submarine tunnels, bridge connections between islands, ports & terminals, and offshore wind farms.
BMT is able to offers its experience in providing feasible marine traffic schemes, facilitating a safe marine working environment for both site construction activity and efficient supply vessel transit. Through our deep knowledge of the local regulatory landscape, BMT's clients have been successful in achieving buy-in from all stakeholders and satisfying government requirements.
Supported by sophisticated 3D mapping & modelling, our TMTM services assist:
BMT's specialists provide effective service to clients in the development of key transport infrastructure, required to link commuter routes and waterfront facilities in the most attractive, efficient and cost-effective manner.
Our specialised ship designs and sophisticated modelling services aim to protect people, cargoes, environment and assets. The best of BMT’s commercial and naval expertise is delivered to our regional customers through a proven record of providing shipping services:
Using AIS-based methodology, BMT mapped out marine traffic scenarios that have enabled clients to plan future dredging activity safety & efficiently.
BMT delivered a Preliminary Marine Transportation Masterplan and an Intermodal Terminal Requirements study to identify the value of adding marine connectivity to Dubai's metro line development.
The Arabian Canal is a unique navigable waterway set within a broad corridor of waterfront real estate development. Years ago when it was proposed, it was anticipated that the canal would host a variety of recreational and public Ferry/Water Bus vessels. BMT delivered several marine planning services to aid canal development.
Our combined experience in hazard assessment and marine safety enabled the accurate identification of the relative risk of various transit routes.
BMT took part in a review of the opportunities for a public marine transport system as part of a previously commissioned waterfront master plan.
BMT supported Parsons Brinckerhoff in developing the first marine transport masterplan for Dubai. A transport model integrating inland and offshore modes can realise significant efficiencies and benefits.
Jeddah's coastal areas have seen significant growth in recent years. BMT proposed a network that was aligned with the significant recreational areas and attractions being developed along the coastline.
BMT reviewed the operational feasibility of an extended ferry route along the full length of the Dubai Creek.
BMT reviewed the opportunities and constraints for a recreational marine transport system in the western border of Sharjah, which is flanked along the coastline by a series of lagoons.
Aberdeen Typhoon Shelter is a major working harbour and tourism node, and the Hong Kong Government has sought to improve the amenities and access to the coastal and water areas. In order to address marine issues BMT conducted a traffic study to support its tourism development.
BMT supported COWI in the development and evaluation of a direct airport link at The Pearl, Qatar, utilising “Venetian style” fast launches.
