Road Design and Section 278 Works

In addition to our road design services, we also offer Section 278 works. Section 278 works are an important part of the planning and development process, and aim to ensure that new or modified highways are built to a standard that is acceptable to the relevant highway authority. This helps maintain safety and the overall quality of the public road network. These works can include a wide range of elements, such as road widening, installation of traffic signals, roundabouts, pedestrian crossings, cycle lanes, and landscaping. The specific scope of works depends on the needs of the development and the requirements of the local authority.

Our experienced team of engineers will develop a Section 278 agreement that meets the requirements of the local highway authority. We'll work with you to design the necessary improvements and provide the necessary documentation to ensure that the works are carried out to the required standards. We will also engage with our internal flood risk consultants to ensure that there is no impact to third-party flood risk, ensuring a smooth approvals process.

Swept Path Analysis and Vehicle Tracking

We offer comprehensive Swept Path Analysis services that can help determine whether a vehicle, such as a car, truck, or bus, can safely manoeuvre through a proposed or existing road layout or facility without any conflicts or obstructions.

With our Swept Path Analysis services, you can optimise your designs, reduce project delays, and ensure the safety of drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists. Whether you're working on a highway project, a bridge, or a building with an underground parking garage, our swept path analysis services can help optimise road layouts, intersection designs, and parking configurations to accommodate various types of vehicles and minimise conflicts.

Construction Traffic Management Plans (CTMPs)

Construction Traffic Management Plans (CTMPs) are typically developed during the early planning stages of a construction project. They are an integral part of the project's planning process and many local authorities require construction projects to submit CTMPs as part of the planning process. The CTMP demonstrates that the project has considered and planned for the management of construction-related traffic impacts including maintaining safety, managing traffic flows, and minimising disruptions during construction projects. They are typically required by local authorities as part of the planning and permitting process for construction activities that impact public roads and transportation infrastructure. Compliance with the CTMP is crucial for both legal and safety reasons. Our experienced team will work with you to develop a customised CTMP that meets the specific needs of your project. We will also liaise with our flood risk consultants to ensure that there is no adverse impact relating to flood risk which might impact the approvals process.
