Transport and Highways Context

As the application Site straddles Ravelrig Road, new priority junctions will be created to access both parcels of the Site. A minimum of one new priority junction will be created to serve the eastern parcel of land, while a minimum of two new priority junctions will be created to serve the western parcel.

A Transport Assessment has been prepared to understand the impact of the Masterplan Development on the surrounding highways network. Detailed operational assessment of the impact of the residual trips has been undertaken at a wide range of junctions in the vicinity of the Site. The assessment has included all existing junctions within the study area, along with the proposed site access junctions onto Ravelrig Road as well as integrating the committed development in the vicinity of the Site (Ravelrig Heights and Kingfisher Park).

From this, the analysis predicts that the proposed site access junctions and the existing junctions within the study area are all predicted to operate satisfactorily for the design year with the proposed mixed-use development trips included.
