Highway & Access Design

Using our expert engineering knowledge with the latest industry design software, TPS develop deliverable, preliminary highway designs for site accesses and transport infrastructure to support development proposals and planning applications. Our aim is to provide our clients with cost-effective designs that help to improve safety, ease congestion, and improve mobility. Typically, this involves identifying and overcoming constraints (for example third party land or environmental) to access new development areas and negotiation with the appropriate highway authority.

We ensure that sustainable modes of transport such as walking and cycling are considered from the outset, applying the principles set out in Manual for Streets and other prominent policy documents.

Additionally, if your planning application has identified the need for off-site improvements to the highway, including roundabouts, signalised junctions, pedestrian crossing installations, priority junctions and mini-roundabouts, TPS work with our design partners to provide Section 278 and 38 detailed design services, which include the preparation of as built and construction drawings, drainage design, lining and signage plans, cost advice, and project management.
