Justin Plaza Mitcham

TPHS were appointed by Lodgecrest Limited to prepare the Transport Statement to support a prior approval application for the change of use of the existing office floorspace within the Justin Plaza building in Mitcham, to provide thirty residential apartments. A key part of the technical work was to rationalise the car parking on the site so as to enhance the on-site servicing and to ensure sufficient space would be available to provide secure and covered cycle parking areas. The resultant level of reduced car parking was agreed with the highway authority following detailed parking surveys.



TPHS has undertaken numerous Construction Traffic Management Plans (CTMPs) for schemes of varying scales and at contrasting locations, with each site having its own opportunities and constraints. We are well versed in preparing these reports in numerous London Boroughs including Camden, Croydon, Greenwich, Hammersmith and Fulham, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea, Richmond and Westminster. Within all of these plans a full assessment is undertaken of the routing strategy for construction vehicles and how these then access the site – be this with off-street or on-street arrangements.


A39 Glastonbury – S278 Works

TPHS were appointed by Sanctuary Housing to assist with the close out and agreement of the S278 works associated with a residential development at Glastonbury on A38. The project was basically a Client Representative or Client Agent function to ensure that time frames were met and adhered to and the contractor on site was progressing the S278 close out in good time. Steve Jones led the team and met with representatives of the client, Contractor and Somerset Highways to provide a focus for the close out.


A20 Condition Survey and Design Audit

TPHS were appointed by Port of Dover to assist them to investigate the deterioration of the carriageway surfacing following completion of the A20 works to construct two new signals junctions on Townwall Street on the approach to Dover Eastern Docks. The work entailed investigating the on site construction and delivery records of the contractors and sub consultants and examining the type of road construction including through the undertaking of core samples from the road.
