Hyndburn Road, Accrington, Lancashire

Client:Barnfield Construction Sector:Retail Services:Civil Engineering Link Design Lead:Chris Hadjivassiliou

Link Engineering was delighted to support its client, Barnfield Construction in agreeing the new access arrangement with Lancashire County Council from our Manchester office.

The proposed development consisted of a new food store on Hyndburn Road, Accrington, with the new access provided through the provision of a new ghost right turn into the site with pedestrian/cyclist improvements along the western boundary.

Once planning consent had been granted, Link completed the detailed highway design associated with the proposed access and other highway improvements required as part of the planning permission. Pre-planning transport and highway advice was provided by our colleagues at Mode Transport. We played a key role in engaging with Lancashire County Council Highways to agree the design principles, value engineering solutions and complete the detailed design to support a S278 Agreement. 

The scope of works included:

  • Full 2D and 3D design and setting out;
  • Pavement and Kerbing construction layouts & details;
  • Horizontal visibility profiles;
  • Swept Path Analysis;
  • Cyclist and pedestrian infrastructure improvements;
  • Road markings and signage to TSRGD;
  • Street Lighting;
  • Road Safety Audit responses;
  • Discharge of pre-commencement planning conditions;
  • Underground utilities coordination.
