What is a Transport Assessment?

Developers are often asked to assess the peak hour capacity of the highway network as part of a planning application. These transport assessments are an integral part of transport engineering that can be requested by the Highway Authority where they deem the impact of a development proposal on a junction to be material.

With over 20 years of experience in transport and traffic engineering, we are the right people to call if you require a professional transport risk assessment.

State of the Art Software for Transport Consultancy

At Vemco Consulting, we use state-of-the-art, industry-standard computer software for our traffic management design to create 3-D models of junctions so we can thoroughly analyse transport systems outlined in your development plans. To ensure we get the most realistic picture possible, the software we use varies according to the type of junction on the road. 

Some of the software we use in our transport assessments include:

  • PICADY – PICADY software is used for predicting junction capacities, delays and accident risk at major/minor priority junctions. This software allows our expert traffic and transport engineers to create comprehensive 3-D models of the highway, including T-junctions, crossroads and pedestrian crossings.
  • ARCADY – ARCADY is the industry-standard software used in the assessment of roundabout capacity and delay. ACARDY software is capable of modelling mini and larger, non-signalised roundabouts, as well as linked roundabout networks and pedestrian crossings. Our team of specialist highway engineers use this software to predict entry and approach width, as well as conflict angle and flare length.
  • LINSIG – LINSIG software is commonplace in many local authority offices around the country and is used in the assessment and design of isolated traffic signal junctions. The suite enables our highway engineers to model junctions based on real-life behaviour of operating traffic signal control equipment.
  • TRANSYT – TRANSYT is used in the design, evaluation and modelling of single isolated junctions, linked signalised junctions, mixed signal-controlled and priority controlled traffic networks. The software allows us to predict signal timings at junctions, as well as rush-hour traffic flows and cycle time optimisation.
 
As well as transport assessments, we also provide a range of other traffic engineering services – click here for our full range of transport engineering services.
