The Stilwell Partnership was appointed to provide various transport services to help the client gain planning permission from Slough Borough Council for the proposed development and help negotiate with the Council. The development includes the expansion of Queensmere Shopping Centre and 675 flats in Slough Town Centre.
The access to the site is on the busy A4 running through Slough town centre. The existing Queensmere car park was also run down and in need of modernising. The proposed development would add additional trips both onto the highway network, pedestrian and public transport facilities. Modelling was undertaken along Wellington Street and options were put forward to increase the capacity of the junction into the car park.
A new car park for the Queensmere shopping centre was also put forward and a revision of the layout was required to accommodate some resident parking, taxi drop-off areas, Car Club and electric vehicle spaces. A new Cycle Hub was also installed to encourage cycling by residents, shoppers and staff.
As part of this project, in addition to the revised junction arrangement and car park design, a Transport Assessment, Travel Plan, Service Management Plan and Car Park Management Plan were produced.
