Construction Traffic Management Plans (CTMPs)

Construction Traffic Management Plans (CTMPs)

The CTMP process has evolved over the last few years to encompass traffic assessments and to define impacts of construction vehicles of developments. Specifically, CTMPs are produced mainly for sites which have relatively large dig or fill elements such as basement digs, concrete structures or sites with proximity to other developments which could have significant need for larger construction vehicles.

TPHS have significant experience in providing these reports on behalf of clients on many basement developments and also larger construction impact sites. TPHS work with structural engineers, architects, project managers and clients to develop a bottom-up strategy which identifies numbers and types of vehicle and deliveries for development schemes. We then provide a timetable and indicative arrivals / departures profile for the construction vehicles, route identification and assessment via AutoTRACK as well as advice on on-site or kerbside access arrangements and the need for additional licences and/or traffic orders.
TPHs have not only provided reports but also follow-up with the applications for parking bay suspensions, temporary traffic orders and temporary crossover licences and designs as part of the process.

A selection of recent project experience includes:

Work Inputs to all of the above included detailed assessment in terms of swept path analysis of routes and access by a range of delivery and construction vehicles and in terms of the development and assessment of loading / unloading arrangements, including any storage areas which could be provided. Providing detailed calculations by types and numbers for the movements of vehicles during the enabling works, basement dig, muck away and concrete and steel deliveries. In addition, providing a programme of works and timetable on a daily and weekly basis for the entire project including fit-out and handover. This included working out methods of construction to minimise impacts.
