Mayer Brown established that the A264 carried in excess of 16,000 vehicle trips per day, and that localised carriageway widening would be required to accommodate an appropriate site access junction. Working with scheme architects an access solution was developed that allowed 68 residential dwellings to be proposed for the site, with access via a ghost-island major-minor priority junction. Careful consideration was given to the location of mature trees, and the demarcation between 30mph and 50mph speed limits along the site’s frontage, to ensure the proposed access junction met all relevant highway design standards. A strategy to improve facilities for pedestrians and cyclists on the A264 in the vicinity of the site was also proposed.
The access and movement strategy was presented to the local planning authority, and residential development on the site is now being progressed through the Local Plan process.
