Our detailed knowledge of the planning system together with our traffic engineering and design skills enable us to produce TIAs which stand up to scrutiny of a potential appeal and/or oral hearing. Our goal is to recommend cost effective mitigation measures which will ensure that the development is considered sustainable from a traffic and transport point of view.
Waterford Shopping Centre
This was the largest independent transportation study undertaken for any mixed use development in the country. It required an area wide assessment of traffic through Waterford City centre using SATURN. We carried out junction improvement designs and modelling of the proposed network arrangement using TRANSYT. The solutions put forward were achieved using UTMS and ITS systems.
Landfill and MRF Developments for Greenstar Holdings Ltd.
We have been an integral member of the project team for 4 landfill site developments (East Galway, Knockharley, Ballynagran and Usk). These strategic infrastructure projects are of critical importance with regard to achieving national waste management targets. For each development we were responsible for modelling the impact of the development on the surrounding road network and proposing mitigation measures as appropriate.
Ramparts Development Navan, Co. Meath
This is a large development of a 66 acre site on the outskirts of Navan, consisting of residential, community, recreation and employment land uses. The objective of the assessment was to indentify the incremental impact of traffic arising from the phased development of the entire lands. To achieve this, an area wide model of Navan was set up using S-Paramics micro-simulation software.
Kepak Development Kilbeggan, Co. Westmeath
We prepared a TIA for a proposed state of the art meat processing plant at Kilbeggan in Co. Westmeath. The road serving the site had a number of pinch points and along some sections was in a state of disrepair ,so following negotiation with the Local Authority it was advised that passing bays be implemented at 200-300m intervals along the route together with re-surfacing to accommodate the additional traffic arising from the proposed development.
