Technology is integral to making better use of our highways network. In times of public sector reform and spending reviews, strategic investment in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) can still realise cost-effective and sustainable benefits. To meet these demands, 4way Consulting provides significant ITS and road lighting experience in a lean and agile manner.

4way Consulting is an independent ITS design and consulting business that delivers positive operational outcomes for our clients in the private and public sector. We have a deep understanding of technology and its applications for managing the movement of people and goods on the road network.

The way technology is operated and maintained can have a significant impact on the benefits provided. We ensure these aspects are robustly considered throughout the feasibility and design stages including the associated impact on whole life costs.

4way has extensive experience working with strategic and urban road operators and we have been at the forefront of development, design and delivery of Smart Motorways for Highways England.

4way services encompass all aspects of urban ITS and traffic signal design, management and supervision, from concept through to commissioning. Our Engineers have a wealth of experience of working with aged legacy equipment through to the latest technology.   

Our Quality Management System is accredited to ISO 9001 (approved and certified by ISOQAR in 2013) and we manage projects in line with PRINCE2 methodology. We use leading-edge IT processes and equipment to provide an integrated, secure and flexible platform for our service delivery. The business is operated from our offices in Stockport and Warwick. We have a well-established supply community from which we draw specialist support as required.
