Access Feasibility Studies
An Access Feasibility study occurs at an early stage of the land use planning process. They are primarily intended to establish the potential points of access to a development site and to identify the challenges that would be forthcoming to a proposal in highway/transportation terms.
Collisions Investigation Studies
Collisions Investigation Studies are undertaken by our expert team with acknowledged training and experience in this function. It is usual for a brief to be provided and collisions and their causality identified within the scope of the study area. Incidents with “common factors” are identified, which will then enable a Safety Improvement Scheme to be provided to reduce the potential for accidents whilst still allowing the highway system to efficiently operate. Safety Improvement schemes can contain physical changes to the highway network or changes to Traffic Regulation Orders, or a mix of both.
necessary to undertake an Area Wide Accessibility Study of the ‘base line situation’ with predictions post development of the journey changes and travel opportunities likely to be brought about as a consequence of the development. Using the base line situation, measures to encourage the use of sustainable travel can be incorporated in land use proposals or mitigation put forward, where likely unaddressed increases in traffic may bring about adverse environmental impacts.
Parking Layouts & Assessments
Both existing and proposed layouts can be assessed in relation to the practicalities of vehicle movement and safety, with levels of parking provision compared to national and local planning policies, and good practice.
iTransport Planning specialist design guidance makes use of industry standard software for Swept Path Analysis of vehicle movements, and advice can also be provided on material choice with respect to service yard and access roads within developments, for HGV manoeuvring and loading.
Area Wide Accessibility Studies
Major redevelopments have the potential to significantly change traffic and journey patterns within a wide area. Where this is expected it may be
Service Delivery Plans
Service and Delivery Management Plans aim to reduce the potentially adverse impacts of service and delivery traffic generated by a development. This may be to ensure the efficient operation of the site, its service or joint parking service area, or the local highway network. As such they are often required to satisfy Local Highway and/or Planning Authorities, and are bespoke to the development and the needs of the commissioning organisation, or end user.
Transport Feasibility Studies
Transport Feasibility Studies occur at an early stage of the land use planning process. They are primarily intended to establish the potential points of access to a development site, the likely level of traffic generated by the proposed development, the ability to access the site by sustainable modes, and to identify the challenges that would be forthcoming to a proposal in highway/transportation terms.
Sustainable Transport Studies
Either free standing or as part of a land use proposal we can provide advice on the availability, safety and suitability of existing sustainable transport arrangements. Studies can relate to facilities for pedestrians and cyclists, and public transport users, and may also relate to the capacity of existing arrangements.
