Cheltenham Public Realm

Cambray Place, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

Client:Cheltenham Borough Council Sector:Public Realm Services:Civil Engineering Link Design Lead:Nick Moore

Working closely with the Landscape Architects, Link were appointed by CBC to prepare the highway design details to support the proposed upgrade of the Public Realm along Cheltenham High Street. The proposed improvement works were to be completed under a S278 Agreement. 

The works included the complete replacement of the existing road surfacing with natural block paving. The drainage design utilised rain gardens to enhance the bio-diversity impact of the proposals all designed to the highway authority standard. In order to make the road a pedestrianised zone the Traffic Regulation Order had to be revised. Other constraints included a number of underground services and protruding basements.

  • Full 2D and 3D design and setting out
  • Pavement and Kerbing constructions
  • Road markings and signage to TSRGD
  • Street Lighting
  • Sustainable Drainage Design
  • Road Safety Audit responses

Link were commissioned to continue to support the development through to construction providing technical advice to the construction and client.
