Canwell Ltd has extensive experience of working with the private sector on the design and construction of highways scheme measures to meet the requirements of Section 278 agreements.
We will work closely with the private developer and the Local Authority to agree a workable and cost-effective highway design solution for the successful delivery of the developers’ overall project.
We will engage with the developers’ team and associated parties involved on the project (e.g., architects and other consultants) to deliver cost-effective solutions.
Our team will seek early engagement with the Local Authority to review approved planning drawings and identify and resolve any engineering issues. Thereafter, we will work towards gaining Local Authority approvals.
Typical works delivered under S278 agreements have included design and implementation of : New/Improved junction schemes; Highway alignment/roadway alteration schemes; New traffic signal junctions/crossings, New/Improved facilities for cyclists and/or pedestrians; Street lighting improvements, Traffic Regulation Order measures; Traffic management/ road safety measures.
We have designed vast number of projects from simple Bell Mouth junctions on a residential road, to public realm schemes involving complete redesigns of streets, to multi-arm motorway roundabouts and complex junctions.
We have designed and implemented a wide range of highway schemes – which in turn have required a range of surface-water drainage scheme solutions.
Our range of highway scheme works in support of developers applications, have at times also required structural engineering appraisals and solutions within the design/construction process.
Canwell are able to provide lighting layout designs for Section 278 highway projects and private applications including public and residential roads, urban centres and car parks etc.
Canwell have a specialist team of Traffic Signal design engineers who support the private sector, this is one of the main parts our consultancy work we deliver.
Canwell Limited can assist with obtaining information, investigations and reporting to assist with the design and approval of S278 or off highway schemes.
