Highways

  • Two means of vehicular access are proposed for the site
  • The principal access will be from the A2990 Thanet Way
  • The design and the precise location of the junction arrangement is still subject to ongoing design work

Local transport
assessment

  • The impact of the development on the wider area will require the production of a comprehensive Transport Assessment
  • Junction modelling will be undertaken at all junctions within the assessment area, using state-of-the-art modelling software
  • This process will allow the existing and proposed capacity of the local road network to be analysed
  • If necessary, mitigation can be introduced to ensure any impact can be accommodated on the network. This has to be discussed and agreed with the local highway and planning authorities
  • Existing public transport capacity will be assessed and potential improvements considered
