We appointed local civil and highway engineer Canham Consulting to undertake detailed traffic and transport assessment. We undertook traffic counts to understand current levels and used an industry standard transport database and data analysis system to determine and to analyse the likely number of trips to and from the site in the future (taking in to account our site and other committed development).

We also carried out detailed analysis of three critical road junctions to see how they would perform:

  1. The entrance to our site
  2. Victoria Mill Road and Station Road T-Junction
  3. Station Road, Albert Road, and B1119 priority crossroad junction.

The analysis shows our development will increase congestion slightly, but all junctions have ample capacity to cope with the increase in vehicle numbers.

More detail is available in the Transport Assessment submitted as part of our planning application.
