Concept and Feasibility
The objective of this phase is to identify the need for a scheme initially. Whilst the need for a scheme will be influenced by Government Policy and all current planning policy, it is also necessary to define the existing problems using quantifiable performance indicators i.e. evidence-based analysis of the transport issues. These performance indicators will be subsequently re-evaluated during the later stages of the project to assess the suitability of any potential solutions in addressing the deficiencies identified at the outset.
In addition, in assessing the need for a particular scheme, the integration of the scheme with public transport and/or other transport modes is assessed. Other forms of transport and/or other non-road options are examined as possible alternatives to the scheme.
Phase 1 was completed in July 2020 and the published documents are listed below.
