Comprehensive Traffic Solutions
Our experienced design department aim to provide a comprehensive solution to your traffic management logistical needs. We provide traffic management drawings to suit any traffic management requirement from a simple lane closure, a two-way traffic layout to a fully comprehensive traffic diversion operation. All our drawings meet the standards required by Chapter 8.
Our aim is to provide a solution that minimises disruption as far as possible for road users whilst considering the safety of pedestrians and the workforce. If required we can liaise with the relevant authorities, contractors or subcontractors to provide traffic management drawings well in advance of any proposed works that could negate the need for lengthy site meetings.
GTM provide a complete turnkey solution for all traffic management design and implementation.
Comprehensive traffic solutions
Sign making facilities
We are able to produce and size bespoke temporary traffic management signs in house which are compliant with Chapter 8 requirements. This allows us to provide signage as and when it is needed.
The equipment we use is of a high standard; the Gerber Edge FX (Vinyl printer) and Gerber Edge GSX (Vinyl Cutter). The vinyl we use can last between 3 – 5 years outdoors so although we use it for temporary purposes; it can also be used permanently if needed. GTM have an array of materials and colours available which makes any job possible.
3D Traffic Management Plans
For large scale city centre schemes; individual traffic management drawings could be difficult to follow and therefore organising multi-utilities can become a nightmare.
At GTM we have the answer; out with the old drawing and in with the 3D video – a bird’s eye view of what your works will look like, before a spade hits the ground. Imagine viewing the potential works from above, seeing it all from different angles weaving in and around the buildings and skyscrapers – all in 3D.
Our 3D imaging is a great tool and will show you exactly what we have planned. It removes any doubt from a client or council’s mind and provides a realistic view of what your works will bring to the city.
Site Survey to Design
GTM have a full ‘Unique’ Survey to Design package and can offer the client
We have in place a site survey to design process which enables us to deliver full traffic management drawings to our clients within a 4 hour or next day window. During a site survey of your proposed site, we will collect all the information required including a sketch of the site and photographs via our GARD phone application. This information gets emailed to our dedicated CAD team who can start drawing up your traffic management needs straight away and deliver a swift turnaround of your drawing. GTM are committed to providing a first-class service and this design facility helps us do just that.
Swept Path Analysis
Planning Applications for temporary road works / new road layouts sometimes need to demonstrate that the plan layout can accommodate the movement of vehicles. Designs are being challenged more and more by the planning authority who need to be confident that the proposed layout is fit for purpose, particularly for sites where room for vehicle manoeuvres is limited.
In order for the Local Authority to be confident that the design proposals can accommodate vehicle movements they can request a drawing showing the Swept Path Analysis of vehicles overlaid on the proposed site layout to demonstrate that the vehicles can manoeuvre safely and efficiently within the site layout. We use the latest Vehicle Tracking software to show vehicle swept path analysis using large vehicles including 16.5m (length) HGV.
