So what exactly does a Highway Engineer do? Do I need one? … and this looks like an interesting field of work – so how do I become one? These are all questions that we are regularly asked and in response we have sponsored a new website which gives an insight into our work within highways and transportation and seeks to explain in an easily understandable manner some of the technical aspects of our world.
The website shows the involvement of the Highway Engineer in the various progressions of a development proposal from concept to physically getting started on site. It highlights some of the traffic modelling processes that are used daily, the follow on highway related legal aspects of implementing a development proposal, off site highway works – and finally what do you do if at the end of the planning application procedure you are found with a refusal of consent?
Links are included for further reading where necessary – the site will be of general interest to many in the development industry and may also set you on the “first step on your road” to becoming one of us! – so why not pay us a visit today at www.highwayengineer.co.uk
