Intelligent Transport Assessment

A Transport Assessment reviews the impact of the development on the local highway network in relation to the impact of ‘person trips’ from the development.

 

‘Person trips’ are journeys by all forms of transport (walking/cycling/public transport and vehicles) and both the highway network and public transport facilities are reviewed in terms of their current and future suitability in relation to safety and capacity (link or junction modelling).

 

Where identified Transport Assessments also include suggestions ‘in principle’ for highway improvements (which may be off site), and improvements to sustainable transport arrangements.

The need for either a Transport Assessment or Transport Statement is usually identified at an early stage by discussions with the Local Planning or Highway Authority.

Expert Transport Statement

A Transport Statement reviews the impact of the development on the local highway system in relation to the impact of ‘person trips’ from the development. ‘Person trips’ are journeys by all forms of transport (walking/cycling/public transport and vehicles) and both the highway network and public transport facilities are reviewed in terms of their current and future suitability in relation to safety and general capacity. However, unlike Transport Assessments, they do not normally include junction or link modelling.

 

Where identified Transport Statements also include suggestions ‘in principle’ for local highway improvements and improvements to sustainable transport arrangements.

The need for either a Transport Assessment or Transport Statement is usually identified at an early stage by discussions with the Local Planning or Highway Authority.

Transport Scoping Studies

Prior to commencement of a Transport Assessment it is usual to agree the ‘scope’ of the study with the Local Highway Authority.

 

Examples of issues to be agreed are:-

  • The level of vehicle trips generated by the proposal and their distribution onto the road network;
  • The extent of the highway network to be reviewed in relation to capacity and safety at junctions and road links;
  • The impact of any existing planning consents (‘committed development’) to be included in the review;
  • A design year for the opening of the development and a future year to test junction/link calculations;
  • The extent of examination of sustainable travel arrangements; and
  • The relevant highway design standards and guidance.
  • A Transport Scoping Study may also include a review of road traffic accident data for the assessment area
