Featured Project: Traffic impact and road safety assessment for a proposed function centre in Ballarat
RedSquare Traffic was recently engaged by Inception Planning to prepare a Traffic Impact Assessment to support a patronage increase in a proposed function centre located in an unsealed, single lane, bi-directional narrow road without any street lighting which also has a narrow culvert bridge!
RedSquare Traffic’s team commenced the project by undertaking turning movement and parking surveys together with an on-site road safety assessment. Following the design guidelines specified in ARRB’s Best Practice Guide for Unsealed Roads and Austroads Design Guidelines, our team conducted a comprehensive road safety assessment including an assessment of the suitability of its existing unsealed access road and the non-perpendicular driveway.
We performed several design guideline checks including an assessment of road carriageway width, lighting levels, drainage and several sight distance calculations including:
Additionally we performed a parking demand assessment, a traffic generation and distribution assessment as well as a turn warrants assessments.
A realistic list of recommendations were provided to the client covering all required bases. At RedSquare Traffic, we don't prepare half baked cakes for our clients. We believe compromising the quality by using short-cuts only end up causing headaches in the long run for both the clients and us. A quick turnaround can be attractive. However, it can never beat a quality piece of work.
