A new school access arrangement was designed to improve the safety and efficiently of the existing access arrangements by:
The proposed access design also allowed more stacking room for vehicles waiting to exit the school and moved any potential stacking away from the main parking areas at the school providing a benefit to the free flow of traffic around the site.
The proposed signalised junction incorporated a new toucan crossing (linking to the retained layby and cycle lane on the northbound carriageway of the A30), anti-skid surfacing and waiting areas for cyclists ahead of the stop lines.
The proposed arrangement also provided a new shared cycle/ pedestrian route into the school from the new toucan crossing over the A30 at the proposed signal junction, requiring re-positioning of the existing and signage and security gates. A cycle slip was also provided on the northbound A30 cycle land to direct cyclists to the proposed toucan crossing facility and the cycle routes proposed into and out of the school tied in with the existing cycle lanes on the southbound A30.
Mayer Brown Ltd managed the planning application process and the proposed access arrangements were approved by Runnymede Borough Council and the project has now been passed to our Infrastructure Design Team who are moving the project forward.
