Highways & Transportation Planning
SLR has considerable and wide ranging experience in the field of highways & transportation, working in a variety of development projects across all business sectors.
We are involved in projects from the initial feasibility and planning studies to the design and implementation of the development and off site highways infrastructure.
SLR has an entrenched awareness of the environmental and commercial sensitivities of new developments and this is reflected in all elements of our work. We also pride ourselves on our ability to provide accurate and timely advice to our clients, helping to minimise the need for prolonged and protracted negotiations with the relevant authorities.
How an SLR help?
Any new development will have an impact in some form on the local transport network. From the earliest stages in the planning process, SLR works to quantify the likely development impacts and provide accurate and timely advice on the most appropriate and cost-effective forms of mitigation, only where necessary.
The assessment work undertaken within the planning process is often complex and will vary dependent upon the nature of the development, its proximity to the transport network and the suitability of its access and adjacent road infrastructure. We have considerable skill in identifying the key issues relating to each individual site and are able to mould technical arguments to be supportive of the case for development.
Leading on from the planning process, or as a separate service, SLR provides a full range of assistance associated with the design and implementation of all elements of highway works, including off site highway improvements, access junction improvements and on site infrastructure design.
