Traffic Impact Assessments
Traffic Impact Assessments (TIAs) or more recently Traffic and Transport Assessments (TTAs) are a comprehensive appraisal of the traffic and transport issues for any given development. They are required to demonstrate the sustainability of developments in transport terms and that they comply with local and national transport policies and objectives. The TIA can be produced as a stand alone report or combined into an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS.) We have over 15 years experience in preparing TIAs for major commercial, retail, industrial, mixed use, residential, office, hotel, leisure and nursing home developments. All TIAs are prepared in accordance with the Instititution for Highways and Transportation ‘Guidelines for Traffic Impact Assessment’ and the National Roads Authority ‘Traffic and Transport Assessment Guidelines’ documents.
Our detailed knowledge of the planning system together with our traffic engineering and design skills enable us to produce TIAs which stand up to scrutiny of a potential appeal and/or oral hearing. Our goal is to recommend cost effective mitigation measures which will ensure that the development is considered sustainable from a traffic and transport point of view.
