We are proud to have been a part of the consultancy team to successfully deliver the access arrangements for a new Aldi store at Caernarfon Road, Bangor.

Situated on a busy route to the city centre, the site was previously home to a vacant industrial unit. We were retained to support our client through the whole process, from our Transport Planning team helping to secure planning permission, through to our Design Team supporting the scheme to completion.

We are currently also assisting to secure the final certificate for the works, ready for formal adoption of the highway by the Local Highway Authority under a Section 278/38 agreement.

Replacing the existing give-way T-Junction with a 3-arm mini-roundabout was not without its challenges on such a busy route, but the construction team from Jennings Building and Civil Engineering worked hard to deliver an exceptional scheme.

We undertook site supervision and held regular meetings with the Highway Authority, which meant that the works for the access arrangements were signed-off almost immediately after completion. This minimised liability to our client and delivered a scheme that meets all parties’ requirements.

We are also proud to report that the Stage 3 Road Safety Audit of the newly constructed mini-roundabout, undertaken by an independent third party, identified no problems or advisory items – a commendable result achieved through consideration of highway safety at every stage.

Connect Consultants work nationally, and we pride ourselves on building strong working relationships with our clients, construction teams, and local authorities.

If you have development plans that require highway access to be delivered under a S278 or S38 agreement, then please contact Fiona Neil: fneil@connect-consultants.com to discuss how we can help you deliver your obligations as smoothly as possible.
