Another busy week here at Traffic Management London. A client asked us to negotiate a very challenging construction logistics problem involving the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, and, Transport for London. We successfully identified a practical solution to alleviate the concerns of both authorities.
For anyone planning a construction site or work on the highway where access could be difficult, or simply planning a delivery to a site with restricted access, producing a Vehicle Swept Path (VSP) is a must.
Whether you need to get a mobile crane into a site, an oversized load through smaller streets, or just demonstrate how a site access will work, a VSP can save time and money. Planning any job is the key to success and not least of all when it comes to logistics. As with any industry the supply of materials is necessary and getting vehicles to the delivery point is essential. This must be done with safety in mind to limit risk to other road users and pedestrians alike. It should also consider minimising disruption to the local network.
Using this tool, we can prove any route to and from a location for any vehicle. This allows the local authority to approve certain planning aspects, it can also help plan what size vehicle is used to deliver to a site. Likewise, when working on the highway where the carriageway is impeded, especially on routes with buses and lorries it can sometimes require a VSP to prove those type of vehicles can pass safely and without hindrance.
Should you require any advice or if you think you might need a VSP then please get in touch. We are always happy to help, give advice and recommend what you need.
We look forward to hearing from you.
