Projects and articles of Dirk Engels
ResearcherDirk Engels graduated as a civil engineer at KU Leuven and is a recognised EIA expert in the discipline 'People, Mobility', for drawing up environmental impact reports for the Flemish Government, LNE. He also completed a postgraduate course in "Urbanism and Spatial Planning". As an independent mobility expert, he supports TML with his extensive experience in traffic modeling and the design, management, and evaluation of multi-modal traffic systems. His expertise is built on the active role he played in a large number of mobility studies at urban, regional, and European levels such as urban mobility plans, impact studies, parking studies, and the design and evaluation of multimodal transport systems. Recently, he was mainly active as an evaluation expert in various European projects such as CIVITAS SATELLITE, where he coordinated the evaluation of current urban projects, and in SMARTA where rural mobility solutions were tested. In Flanders, he supports the design process and the practical traffic organisation of the works for the Oosterweel connection with traffic engineering and modeling insights, and he acts as an EIA expert for mobility for the R0 East. In collaboration with various urban designers, he also participates in various local master plans and the 'Bouwmeesterscan' of Flemish municipalities.
