Hurstpierpoint High street improvements
TSP was appointed to investigate the pedestrian and traffic movements in the High Street, assess areas of conflict and road safety concerns and prepare a design scheme to address these issues. The scheme was to be incorporated into a Public Consultation requiring the complex background issues and design proposals to be clearly presented.
- Road Safety Studies and Management
- Traffic & Parking design solutions
- Design of Highway Improvements
- Public Consultations
High Street Hurstpierpoint is a narrow 18th century high street of varied carriageway width and narrow footpaths. The location suffers from unrestricted HGV servicing and conflicts with buses and other large vehicles, illegal parking, with uncontrolled traffic movements.
- Reviewed the existing data and previous studies.
- Prepared mathematical traffic flow models incorporating 20 year growth predictions
- Considered and tested a range of solutions to address traffic and pedestrian conflicts
- Developed a range of options to address the local issues
- Prepared and attended the public consultation, analysed the response and reported back to the client.
The aim of the feasibility study was to develop a scheme to:
- improve pedestrian safety.
- improve the street layout to create a more pleasant environment for pedestrians and shoppers, and
- develop self-regulating traffic arrangements such that the conflicts between buses, HGVs and general traffic is “less frenetic and more managed”.
