The former HMP site in Northallerton town centre is undergoing redevelopment, transforming the old prison into new build retail and leisure facilities for the town. The prison has been demolished in part, leaving the retained listed buildings which will be part of the regeneration plan. The project represents a major improvement for the town, and we were commissioned to produce a Transport Assessment and Framework Travel Plan as part of the planning application for the development.
The Transport Assessment included a road casualty appraisal, trip generation projections and junction capacity assessments of a number of key junctions within Northallerton town centre. The assessment identified a number of development impacts and through iterative design and testing, determined the required mitigation to facilitate the proposed development.
We have also recently been instructed to undertake detailed highway designs for a number of highway works associated with the development, including the access point and a new signalised junction.
