Urban renewal schemes aim to rejuvenate the streetscape of existing village and town centres, in order to enhance the quality of life for residents, businesses and visitors of the area. Urban renewal schemes can range from the enhancement of a single street to the development of a new town centre or public amenity space.

Carlow Town Centre Urban Renewal

We were commissioned to prepare preliminary and detailed designs for individual street upgrades within the town centre as part of the Carlow Town Urban Renewal Scheme. The objectives of the scheme were to optimise on-street parking; whilst providing additional facilities for vulnerable road users. As part of the scheme we also developed an enhanced traffic management system for the town centre.

Kilcock Urban Renewal

As part of this scheme we carried out preliminary and detailed designs for the upgrade of School Street iand its environs in Kilcock. The objective of the scheme was to enhance the public amenity streetscape in order to make better provision for pedestrians.

Traffic Impact Assessments - Trafficwise Traffic & Transport Solutions

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.


Feasibility Studies - Trafficwise Traffic & Transport Solutions

Once the preferred site was identified a planning application outlining proposals to develop the site was submitted and planning permission was subsequently granted. We were charged with assessing each site from a roads and transportation view point and recommending a preferred site based on these issues.


Traffic Management Plans - Trafficwise Traffic & Transport Solutions

To proactively manage the growth of private motorised traffic; and to maximise opportunities for sustainable modes of transport, to ensure that a high level of accessibility is maintained to the town centre. Traffic management plans are generally required to assess the traffic conditions of towns and urban centres where there are a number of different junctions interacting with one another.


Parking / Signage Strategies - Trafficwise Traffic & Transport Solutions

One approach might be to adopt or enhance a parking strategy for town centres i.e. implementing short and long term parking areas to be administered under a parking management system. Local Authorities frequently require various initiatives to meet development plan objectives such as alleviating congestion and improving accessibility at urban centres.
