When you consider the future of transport hubs, careful consideration goes into how to modernise and design them accordingly to meet the long-term business objectives around a future of smart stations and cities.

Stations need to ensure they are fully integrated with onward travel modes to accommodate intermodal travel, information and ticketing technologies to support and enhance customer experience at transport interchanges.

Transport nodes need to be considered as a catalyst for innovation to enhance transport modes and local economies.

These aspects are part of furthering the design and development of transport hubs into smarter, futuristic and lively precincts. Success requires careful long-term planning, particularly in the project definition and delivery stages of the project.

The Project Management Plan is the backbone of the planning structure for the project.

The four key areas to consider when planning a project are:

1 cost efficiency

2 effective communication

3 customer expectations

4 future customer demand.
