Transport Consultant

Are you experiencing any of the following at your existing property or your new development?

  • Access problems
  • Excessive traffic congestion
  • Lack of parking facilities
  • Inadequate servicing and turning arrangements
  • Poor highway infrastructure
  • Lack of sustainable transport
  • Highway safety problems
  • Lack of adequate construction details
  • Inadequate highway information to validate your planning application

These are all common reasons for the refusal of a planning application or that may prevent its implementation and are matters that Sanderson Associates address on a daily basis providing our transport consultant services to our Clients with satisfactory solutions in over 97% of projects we were appointed on for our clients.

Solutions to Transportation Planning Matters

Often the provision of empirical information such as radar speed or traffic surveys linked to the correct interpretation of the appropriate national standards can resolve planning issues as may the use of computer swept path analysis of the proposed layout for service or emergency vehicle access.

Investigation of present parking demand and the use of a nationally accepted database of traffic and parking generations (TRICS) can also determine spare capacity with reference to local authority parking standards.

The provision of Travel Plans to encourage the use of sustainable modes of travel and improvements to footways, bus stops and cycle facilities can mitigate the impact of traffic congestion and are often accepted as part of a package of measures to reduce transport concerns related to new developments

Comparisons between existing, potential and proposed development traffic flows may provide data that indicates either a balance of traffic flows or levels that may not materially affect the operation of existing junctions and highway links. Computer modelling of priority junctions, traffic signals and roundabouts will determine their present operating capacity and will determine if there is any free capacity to accommodate an increase in demand from a new development.

A package of construction details compliant with national and local standards can be provided ranging from the simplest vehicular footway crossing, to detailed scheme plans of major highway improvements or new estate roads.

Lack of supporting documents such as Transport Assessments, Travel Plans and Transport Statements can often result in a refusal by a Planning Authority to validate a planning application, leading to possible costly delays in the determination process or at its worse, where applications are validated, refusal on the grounds of “lack of information submitted”.
