Highways

Developments rely on the local highway network for them to function successfully. In order to secure Planning Permission some upgrading of the adopted highways is often required in addition to the construction of new on-site access and circulation routes for adoption by the local Highway Authority. These works need to be tightly controlled since they can often become a major project expenditure as a result of various on-costs such as the commuted sums levied, the cost of providing Security Bonds and the costs involved in diverting buried services utilities. In addition to the costs involved, the timescales to secure the required technical approvals, Road Safety Audits and legal agreements can become protracted and risk  delaying the programme.

We have an extensive track record of delivering highway related works on sites across the UK and have developed an effective collaborative approach to securing the whole range of  Highway Agreements (3.4.5) and Approvals including:

  • S278 Alterations to adopted highways carried out by third party developers.
  • S38 New roads to be adopted by the local Highway Authority.
  • S111 Alterations to adopted highways  with the client being the local council.
  • Stages 1-4 Road Safety Audit Assessments.
  • AIP procedures for adopted structures.
  • Highways drainage solutions Involving SUDS.
