What we do
Junction Concept and Modelling
Chris Kennett Consulting Limited provide creative, conceptual advice on the planning of traffic signals, optimising for cycling, walking and public transport from the start. We can offer unusual and bespoke solutions, to help land developers meet the increasing need for sustainable transport, while still keeping cars moving.
We can model traffic signal junctions and networks in new developments and exsting towns, identifying opportinuties and new capacity. As an expert in the use of JCT’s Linsig modelling software, our modelling is informed by real life, and our knowledge of design, so what we propose, can be achieved.
Traffic Signal Design
We take conceptual plans, junction and network models as the basis for detailed traffic signal designs and specifications. Even complex and challenging network designs can be translated into deliverable traffic signal design packages.
With experience in both planning and delivery, designs are realistic and deliverable, created with the Local Highway Authority’s expectations in mind. Typical signal design packages will include a CAD design, TOPAS 2500 controller specification, works specifications and, of course, Designer’s Risk Assessment.
Within our design work, we think about all road users, including people with disabilities. We actively work to make our designs usable, sustainable and reliable, for everyone’s benefit.
Testing and Validation
Chris Kennett Consulting Limited can undertake full Factory and Site Acceptance Testing, as required by most Local Highway Authorities. This can be followed, if necessary, by validation of the timings and mode of control.
Especially important at roundabouts, gyratories and trunk road or high speed sites, validation makes sure the settings and timings are safe and provide the best level of service to the public. We can validate any mode of control, including V.A., CLF and SCOOT, and we specialise in MOVA.
Validation does not need to be just for traffic – we can validate for pedestrians, cyclists, equestrians and public transport as well.
With experience in construction delivery and project management, we can even advise your project management and delivery teams on building traffic signal installations, helping you manage risk and minimise cost.
Chris Kennett Consulting Limited have joined with JCT Consultancy to offer MOVA Training. Details of upcoming publicly available courses are published on JCT’s website, or get in touch to discuss private or custom training courses.
