Highways & Infrastructure

Most of us use streets, pavements, cycle paths and other routes without necessarily realising the extent of planning and design considerations that precede their construction.   

We focus particularly on optimising traffic flow, and minimising environmental impacts, by thoughtfully prioritising roadspace-efficient active travel modes wherever possible.

By collaborating with clients and stakeholders to define key objectives and requirements, our experienced engineers ensure technical compliance.  They work alongside ITP's transport planners to consider the needs of all potential street users when developing designs.

We develop concept and detailed designs for highway environments and sustainable movement corridors in residential, commercial, education, leisure and mixed-use developments of all scales; working from initial feasibility through to on-site delivery.

Capabilities

  • Traffic Regulation Orders
  • Section 38 and Section 278 works
  • Traffic Management documentation
  • Highway and site wide surface drainage
  • Foul water strategies and Section 104 works

Fourways Quarry, Oakmere

Following completion of a Transport Assessment to support a development of 143 holiday lodges and sailing facility in rural Cheshire, our infrastructure design team completed a technical appraisal to provide pedestrian access to the site from the nearby A556 to improve connectivity to local public transport services. 

Our work involved detailed site audits and appraisal to ensure the proposed footway extension could be delivered without conflicting existing utility assets. We ensured an acceptable design was agreed with the local highway authority, which allowed the S278 process to be completed and technical approval to be granted.

Woolpit, Suffolk

Working on a site next to the A14 in the heart of rural Suffolk, ITP provided a full service range of services; comprising a Transport Assessment, Travel Plan, public consultation events and detailed highway design on behalf of a major house builder.

The detailed highway design consisted of an 800 metre spine road serving a 300 dwelling residential development, a local centre and a primary school. The spine road connected both the development areas to the A14 and the existing village via two new roundabouts.  It also provided internal access for future development parcels as well as  comprehensive pedestrian and cycle access to enhance internal and external permeability to the site.

Quay West Holiday Park, Ceredigion

Following a challenging planning application and appeal process, ITP successfully demonstrated the acceptability of development proposals through the creation of a new all-movements access to the public highway to increase the number of lodges at the holiday park. 

ITP played a key role in the highway design process, liaising with the local authority and utility providers to demonstrate that by reducing the speed limit, prioritising pedestrians, and introducing new crossing infrastructure; a high quality environment could be created without vehicle based dominance.
