Transport

Amble

Preparation of a Transport Assessment and Framework Travel Plan to support a largescale retail development on Coquet Enterprise Park in Amble, Northumberland.

We provided design advice, tested junction capabilities through modelling exercises, produced comprehensive traffic generation and distribution estimates and provided best advice on pedestrian and cycle routes. In association with this, we produced a Framework Travel Plan aimed at maximising the potential for sustainable travel to and from the site upon implementation.

Ashton-Under-Lyne

Provided advice and presented findings to Transport for Greater Manchester on the new town centre masterplan, in and around the Bus Station. 

We undertook microsimulation modelling on key junctions within the greater scheme, alongside LinSig assessments to test the operation and phasing/staging of traffic lights at the junctions, to achieve optimum functionality. 

Bedlington

Production of a Transport Assessment in association with a 2.3 hectare site in Bedlington Town Centre, Northumberland, providing a range of uses including food and non-food retail, public house and residential uses.

A comprehensive assessment has been produced, which tests the capacity of the local network and local car parks in their current form and following the implementation of the development proposals, as well as tracking different vehicle types around the proposed layout to test functionality. Opportunities to maximise the potential for sustainable transport are also being investigated, with the location of new pedestrian crossings and cycle routes key inputs into the scheme. In what promises to be a transformative scheme for Bedlington, a key challenge was liaising with multiple stakeholders.

Bristol Ashton Gate

We are currently producing two parallel Transport Assessments for Ashton Gate, the home of Bristol City Football Club and Bristol Bears Premiership Rugby Union team. The schemes involve the development of a large residential area to the south-west of Bristol City Centre, and a mixed-use development adjacent to Ashton Gate Stadium. 

We are assessing the current transport situation in the area and producing proposals to relieve some of the congestion problems in that part of Bristol, whilst assessing the likely impact of the new proposals on the network. Also important is an assessment of the parking situation, with issues arising when matches are being hosted at the stadium, so we are looking at ways to alleviate some of those issues through the implementation of the development proposals. 

Doncaster Racecourse Hotel and Residential 
South Yorkshire, 2016

Preparation of Transport Assessment in support of a 154 bedroom hotel and hospitality suite together with a separate apartment building of up to 80 units, within the western corner of the existing racecourse site.


We provided ARCADY and PICADY junction analysis, vehicle tracking and proposals for highways amendments, construction access strategy, and preparation of travel plan.

Penny Brook Hotel , Former Olympic Park, London

The Penny Brook Hotel site is in the East Village, the site of the Athletes' village during the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and forms part of the wider Stratford City development.
 

The proposals for the site comprise an Aparthotel and a separate Boutique Hotel both of thirty storeys with café, restaurant, sky bar, conference facilities and basement car parking.
 

We provided all traffic and transport inputs required for the scheme, with planning consent being granted in record time.

Queens Studios, Brent, London

We provided traffic and transport advice for this multiple staged application, allowing the developer to safeguard their position, firstly through a Permitted Development scheme and then through two further planning applications to allow an increase in unit number and maximising development potential.

Daresbury

We worked on behalf of the local regeneration agency to prepare a detailed movement strategy to allow comprehensive development of a major underutilised area immediately north of the city centre. Phase 1 of development incorporating 250,000 sq. ft. retail quarter and cinema opened in May 2014. An essential component of the strategy was the removal of the ‘severance’ to pedestrian and cyclists caused by the Inner Ring Road. Options to transform pedestrian priority across the road were identified and tested. The Phase 1 crossing scheme is now in place. Crowd Dynamics International provided expert witness to the recent CPO inquiry for the link road to provide access to Phase 2 development.

Union Park, Packet Boat Lane, Uxbridge

Having worked for London Green for over five years, our most recent project together has resulted in the creation of 350 residential units from a former office development known as Union Park, adjacent to the Grand Union Canal at Uxbridge.


Following on from a previous ‘Permitted Development’ scheme, we worked closely with town planners Andmore Planning and architects Chassay + Last to maximise development potential, value engineer financial contributions but create a solid and well rounded scheme. 


Transport Dynamics provided initial feasibility work, a detailed Transport Assessment, Travel and Delivery Servicing Plan, post consent negotiations and detailed design advice.

Wrens Stud Livery Yard

Transport advice for a change of use from B1/B2 to former livery use application to create a livery yard.

Riverbank, Albert Embankment, Park Plaza

Advice at Hercules House in relation to car parking arrangements, coach arrival and departure routes, general planning support and detailed design advice. 

Westminster Bridge, Park Plaza

At Riverbank advice was provided in relation to access arrangements following development of a neighbouring site.  

Following a proposal from Transport for London to improve cycle and walking facilities, we were engaged by Park Plaza at their time prime Westminster Bridge hotel to provide advice with regards to people movement, coach parking and access design. 

Heathrow Airline Food Warehouse

Feasibility advice and vehicular swept path analysis to allow building design modelling and design development of a large airline food preparation warehouse near to London Heathrow.
