TRAFFIC ENGINEERING

Derek Saw heads up our traffic survey and traffic impact assessment team. With decades of experience designing and detailing roads and streets ranging from major highways to residential laneways, Northern Consulting Engineers now compliment these skills with the ability to undertake complex traffic surveys, parking surveys and complete Traffic Impact Assessments (TIA’s) for traffic generating developments.

With our own Scout traffic camera system based in Townsville, we offer a timely and affordable survey option for Traffic Movement Counts (TMC’s) at intersections as well as mid-block counts.

TRAFFIC MOVEMENT SURVEYS

  • Intersection traffic movement counts conducted with Scout video camera devices.
  • Mid-block counts conducted with Scout video camera devices.
  • Video images for all surveys provided upon request.
  • Video data processed quickly and accurately via computer algorithms (Miovision).
  • Traffic movement data available in a range of output classifications and forms.
CARPARK FACILITIES AND ENTRANCE AND EXISTINGS TO DEVELOPMENTS

  • Conceptual plan preparation that considers:
    • Access / Egress locations, aisle and car park layout and usability review.
    • Design vehicle identification and manoeuvring requirements.
    • Car parking rates for particular land uses and operations.
    • Pavement design, wearing course selection, pavement marking and signage requirements.
  • Structural design of shade facilities is also undertaken in house and integrated into the overall design.
TRAFFIC IMPACT ASSESSMENTS

  • Background traffic assessments and capacity verification modelling.
  • Estimation of traffic generated by the development and operational uses.
  • Traffic distribution within surrounding road networks.
  • Entry / Exit splits and associated variations in traffic movements.
  • Intersection modelling using SIDRA (Right of way/signed, Roundabouts, Signalised)
  • Prepare detailed intersection / lane configuration plans compliant with all statutory guidelines. (Austroads, DTMR, RMS)
  • Safety audits of preliminary design and final detailed designs.
