Feasibility Studies

Our Expertise

Transport is a key element of any development. In order to ensure a particular area of land can be developed for a specific use, providing a preliminary consideration of highways issues is a critical aspect.

Eddisons will offer a preliminary site assessment, providing the information required for the next stages in the development process.

We offer comprehensive feasibility studies, which enable us to decipher:

– How a development will be accessed by both sustainable transport and private modes

– Any transport challenges that may occur in the future

– The levels of traffic within the area

– Sustainability of the site

Our experience in this area has allowed us to work on a number of prominent developments and projects. We have the level of knowledge to complete feasibility studies for a range of different sectors and land uses. Our technical expertise is second to none, which gives all our clients the confidence to make evidence based decisions on the viability and potential success of a development.

Our technical expertise within this service means we can provide our clients with the highest quality information and guidance. This includes Section 278 Detailed Design.

Expert advice

We have excellent relationships with highway authorities throughout the country. We aim to avoid the need for planning appeals – but if they are needed, our extensive knowledge and experience allows us to provide clients with first class advice on this complex issue.

Section 278 Detailed Highways Design

Where off-site public highway junction improvements have been identified during planning, Eddisons can thereafter administer the Section 278 detailed design and in so doing provide a seamless transition from planning through to construction. Eddisons have vast experience in dealing with public highway improvement schemes and over the years have built up effective working relationships with local authorities throughout the UK. Our design experience covers many different types of junction, access and pedestrian improvements including roundabouts, traffic calming, pedestrian facilities, signalised junctions, pedestrian crossing installations, priority junctions, mini-roundabouts and cycleways. Eddisons offers a comprehensive range of detailed design services utilising the latest software design tools in the highway design process including PDS, MX, Windes, Civil 3D, PDS Sign and Autotrack. Our detailed design services include 3D setting out, drainage design, signage design, road markings, construction material specification, preparation of construction drawings, cost advice, project management and preparation of as built drawings.

“Obtaining planning consent can be an uncertain process and transport is a critical requirement of any application. We have the technical knowledge and working relationships with local authorities to ensure that you obtain the most advantageous planning consent.”
