Transport Impact Assessment for a Bio-Pharmaceutical Development

Transport Insights was commissioned in early 2015 to complete an environmental impact assessment (EIA) transport chapter, develop a mobility management plan (MMP), and advise on junction access arrangements for a proposed bio-pharmaceutical development on Cruiserath Road, Dublin 15.

The assessment considered, and modelled the traffic impacts at:

  • two major roundabout junctions and the main site access junction, using industry standard ARCADY and PICADY software packages;
  • the cumulative impact of a possible further phase of on-site development, and two other major development proposals within the site’s vicinity.

The assessment demonstrated that the development proposals would not have an adverse impact on the operation of the local road network.

In addition to the impact assessment, Transport Insights developed a preliminary design layout for Cruiserath Road to accommodate access to the site.

The application was granted planning permission by Fingal County Council in May 2015, and the development is now operational.
