blog: 10 things about ITP

Author: Laura Marshall

Even if you have worked with us on projects in the past, we reckon there are still a few things you won’t know about ITP… Keep on reading to find out a little bit more about who we are.

  • ITP was formed in 1998 by Colin Brader, Director of ITP’s International sector. Twenty-three years later, there’s now 44 of us that make up ITP and we’re continuing to grow year on year.
  • We have 5 sectors at ITP spanning all areas of the transport planning industry – Development Planning, Influencing Behaviour, Policy and Strategy, Public Transport, and International.
  • Our ethos to improve the way the world moves sits at the heart of what we do. For each project we seek to improve sustainable transport for communities.
  • We take a study tour every 5 years to learn how other countries are planning and delivering sustainable transport systems. The latest city we visited was Utrecht in 2018, but we’ve also been to Amsterdam and Stockholm, Munich, and Barcelona.

  • We have company-wide get-togethers every 6 months, which is an opportunity for teambuilding, topical debates and having fun with our colleagues we don’t see quite as often.

  • Our drive to improve transport systems all over the world has led us to work in over 45 countries since the beginning of ITP’s journey.
  • ITP’s Christmas Dos alternate year on year between an overnight stay in Derbyshire (the last one ended with some rather interesting karaoke performances) and a night out in a city.
  • We support a charity called Transaid which improves access to transport, road safety, and healthcare services in economically developing countries. For our infamous ‘Pembrokeshire 140’ challenge we walked, ran and cycled over 140 miles through the beautiful, if scarily hilly, countryside of Wales to raise £5,000 for Transaid.
All Staff
  • We’ve had the honour of winning CHIT Awards in 2013, 2014 and 2017 for delivering sustainable transport projects that have a positive impact on how people choose to travel; and in 2019 were named as Nottinghamshire’s Business of the Year.
  • In 2020 we joined the Royal HaskoningDHV family, an independently owned Dutch engineering company, to further our transport planning offer in the UK and around the world.
