Most development proposals of any size require planning permission, and highway matters are an important factor in determining planning applications. This book examines the principles adopted by traffic and highway engineers when devising or reviewing proposals for access and other traffic matters. It brings together data from a wide variety of source documents, and provides practical guidance. The book is aimed at the non-specialist, such as architects, surveyors and town planners, and student highway and traffic engineers. Chapters are headed: site access strategy; the planning system; traffic impact assessment; traffic flow; highway link design; priority junctions; roundabouts; traffic signals; road safety; public transport; traffic management; parking; service vehicles; and statutory procedures: traffic management measures.
