Scoping notes & pre-planning documentsContact Us
DC Transportation GDC can prepare a Scoping Note to accompany a Pre-application Enquiry.
The purpose of a Scoping Note is to introduce the development proposals to the Local Highway Authority and reach early agreement on the site access as well as the methodology proposed to prepare the Transport Assessment or Transport Statement.
This can include trip generation rates, trip distribution and geographical scope of the junction assessments.
- Preparation of Scoping Notes to accompany Pre-Planning documents
- Drafting methodologies to be used in Transport Assessments
- Identifying the extent of the study area for which modelling needs to be done
Capacity Assessments may be requested by the Transport Authority when they deem impacts from a development to be significant. DC Transportation GDC’s expert staff will use the following industry standard software for junction modelling:
- Junctions 9 PICADY Module (TRL) for major/minor priority junctions
- Junctions 9 ARCADY Module (TRL) or (SIDRA) for non-signalized roundabouts
- LINSIG (JCT) or TRANSYT(TRL) or SYNCHRO (Trafficware) for isolated/linked signalized junctions, signalized roundabouts and small networks.
- HIGHWAY CAPACITY SOFTWARE (HCS) for freeways, mainlines, ramp merge and diverge areas
DC Transportation GDC’s team can follow standard industry techniques to develop micro-simulation models (VISSIM/PARAMICS/AIMSUN) to help you visually demonstrate the effectiveness of transport improvements to Local and Regional bodies.
Almost any conceivable highway network can be modelled, including priority junctions, signalized junctions, roundabouts, and option testing for real time traffic management or development site access strategies.
The outputs from the models can be in traditional measures of queues and delay but can also be in the form of real-time 3D animated videos which are an effective and convenient way of demonstrating the future operation of a road network at planning committees and public consultations.
- Development and application of micro-simulation models in VISSIM and PARAMICS
- Base Model development
- Calibration and Validation of Journey times and Queues
- Forecast Models
- 3D Animated Videos
We are registered subscribers to the Trip Rate Information Computer System (TRICS) and our highly qualified staff can use this database to calculate information required for Transport Statements and Assessments.
If you have been asked to provide trip generation potential of your proposed development, we can help.
- Estimation of development related trips using TRICS database
- Computation of passer-by and diverted trips for clustered land uses
- Interpretation of trip generation and preparation of Transport Statements

Prepared in accordance with the appropriate planning practice guidance, and taking into account any local authority specific requirements, DC Transportation provides a full and in-depth assessment of the highways and transport implications of development proposals tailored to meet the client requirements.
Reflecting the scale of development proposed, we provide a thorough review of pertinent transport policies at National, Regional and Local level, analysis of baseline conditions, together with details of the proposed development.
This will include a thorough assessment of the person trips generated by the site and the impact of these on the surrounding highway and transport networks.
- In-depth assessment of the transport implications of development proposals
- Thorough review of pertinent transport policies at National, Regional and Local level
- Analysis of baseline conditions, and future conditions, along with details of the proposed development
- Evaluation of the person trips generated by the site and the impact of these on the surrounding highway and transport networks
DC Transportation GDC can complete evaluation of your development site to determine parking requirements and other site ingress egress circulation improvements.
If you are considering promoting a new development or wish to investigate a development on an existing site, our in house team can advise on whether the geometry of the access complies with current standards and identify and design the improvements necessary to bring it up to the correct level to allow for additional vehicular use.
We can evaluate the parking requirements and provide a layout based on standard guidelines. Our CAD team can also perform a SWEPT PATH ANALYSIS to determine the implications of additional slowing and turning movements on the highway at the access point and whether there are local or national policy restrictions that would make the principle of additional traffic difficult.
- Expert opinion on evaluation of site access restrictions for allowable movements
- SWEPT PATH analysis to determine suitability of existing layouts to accommodate turning movements of heavy vehicles
- Parking demand, occupancy and profile computations
- Evaluation of parking lot design and ways to improve circulation
Maximizing the contribution of a transport system requires an understanding of both strategic objectives and technical details, especially the umbrella of benefits and costs that arise from investments and other initiatives.
If you are looking to carry out economic appraisal for any scheme improvement or trying to compare the benefits of different transport improvement options, our highly skilled staff at DC Transportation GDC can apply their deep experience in travel forecasting and transport economics to help you prepare business case supporting documents like Scheme Appraisal Reports (SAR) and Strategic Outline for Business Case (SOBC) documents.
