The road layout of any development needs to be able to accommodate the movement of vehicles as they manoeuvre around site.
Larger vehicles, such as HGVs and 15m-long rigid buses, have a large "swept path" and turning circle in comparison with the space that an average family car requires to manoeuvre. The swept path varies as vehicles move from a straight section of highway to a curved section.
Swept Path Analysis Service
Using the latest in vehicle tracking software, Encon Associates are able to provide detailed swept path analysis to demonstrate the suitability of the highway design to support your application for planning approval.
We can quickly and cost effectively produce the necessary vehicle tracking drawing often required by Local Authorities, in order to prevent any hold up with your planning application.
Our Swept Path Analysis drawings are also fully compliant for the Deliveries & Manoeuvring credit under the BREEAM environmental assessment method and can help towards achieving your sustainability target.
