SW Consultancy Input
Our role in this scheme as the Transport Engineer was to address all transport and parking relating issues. SW Consultancy prepared the Transport chapter of the Environmental Assessment. We worked in a team environment led by McAdam Design. Key considerations included the car parking assessment, liaison with stakeholders, junction modelling and sensitivity testing. Agreement was reached with Transport NI and Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council and approval was granted in December 2017.
