ML Traffic Engineers Pty Ltd – traffic engineering and transport planning consultants on 0413 295 325 or 0406 473 681 (Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, Darwin and Hobart) and 0418 256 674 (Sydney).

Has Council or the Road Authority asked you to submit a report involving a performance based assessment of car parking, access and/or traffic impact issues to be prepared by a suitably qualified traffic engineer?  Are you looking for experienced transport planners / traffic engineers with relevant planning related exposure and in-depth knowledge of statutory requirements? Are you seeking a quotation for consultancy services on traffic engineering matters?  Has Council asked for parking surveys or traffic surveys to be carried out for your planning application or development application? Are you seeking a traffic engineering expert?  ML Traffic Engineers prepares traffic engineering and parking impact assessment reports to support planning applications and development applications.


We are experienced with every conceivable land-use that may trigger the need for a traffic impact assessment -– apartments, bars, car washes, cafes / restaurants, child care centres, children’s play centres, catteries / dog kennels, community centres, dance studios, fitness centres / gymnasiums, galleries, drive-through premises (fast food, coffee, alcohol sales), hotels (accommodation) / motels, industrial units, industrial subdivision, licensed premises (gaming hall, tavern), medical centres, mine-site traffic management, mixed-use sites (residential and commercial), night clubs, offices, places of worship, recreational facilities, residential subdivisions, residential master plans, school master plans, shops, shopping centre developments, supermarkets, tuition centres, trampoline centes and warehouses.

We prepare swept path diagrams using AutoTURN.  A requirement of planning approval may include the ability of the design vehicle to enter the site, internally manoeuvre and exit the site in a forward direction. We have turning templates for cars (B85 and B99 dimensioned), rigid trucks (small, medium SweptPaths_Image.jpgand heavy) and articulated vehicles (semi-trailers and B-doubles). We assess and provide design input into access, parking, on-site vehicle manoeuvrability and site servicing layouts to the requirements of AS 2890.1 and AS 2890.2.  We illustrate the required changes in CAD - to reduce time required by the architect or building designer to incorporate in their plans.

We provide support to architects, lawyers, town planners, surveyors, builders, business operators / owners and individuals on traffic engineering matters. We assist Councils and Road Authorities with peer reviews of other parties’ traffic engineering related submissions. We consider subtle variations that may exist between different state road and local government authorities. Every traffic engineering assessment considers relevant local planning context.  We understand the conflicting requirement between access and internal vehicle manoeuvrability (council) and traffic flow (the road authority).

Hands-on approach is applied to every one of our traffic engineering projects.  ML Traffic Engineers’ key traffic engineering practitioners (Mike on 0413 295 325, Sonja on 0406 473 681 and Benny on 0418 256 674) have extensive experience with private clients and local government.  We are able to provide constructive input on traffic engineering matters from feasibility stages, right through to planning application submissions and, where required, provide expert witness representation at planning court / tribunal hearings. Senior traffic engineering staff are involved in every project.
