Throughout its long history, TRL has been involved in advancing knowledge in support of developing robust transport infrastructure, working for public sector organisations such as the Highways Agency (HA), Department for Transport (DfT) and Transport Scotland in the UK, as well as international governments and institutions, and numerous private organisations.
For more than 80 years, TRL has worked with governments, international funding institutions and private sector clients to bring knowledge and understanding based on research and testing to a vast array of transport related issues. This has enabled us to set standards, formulate policy, manage risk, improve safety, reduce environmental impacts and encourage good engineering practice.
