Who we are
The Be First Transport Team designs, manages, and delivers transport projects around Barking and Dagenham, which are essential to support growth and the everyday needs of our residents. We believe that providing safe and sustainable transport infrastructure, will encourage more people to travel actively, provide alternatives to car use, support growth, and most importantly improve the health of our residents. Central to this is the work we do in schools, promoting and encouraging pupils to think about how they travel.
The team comprises transport engineers, projects managers, behaviour change experts and active travel advocates. We work closely with colleagues at Barking and Dagenham Council, particularly the consultation team, to ensure we are talking to residents and seeking their views on our projects every step of the way.
We are working relentlessly to deliver now – and also plan for growth – working hard to address congestion on our roads, and providing alternatives to changing transport patterns over the next decade and beyond.
We make it happen through:
Principal Transport Planner

We have a proven track record of working with developers, land owners, private individuals, housing associations, local authorities, healthcare providers, education providers and investors. –
