CampbellReith was appointed by Sea Change Sussex to provide full development planning services to support the planning application for the planning, design and construction monitoring of a new £3m gateway link road within Hastings, East Sussex.
The proposed Queensway Gateway Road is a 650m of single lane carriageway of a width suitable for traffic speeds of up to 60kph. The road will connect the A21 (Sedlescombe Road North) to the B2092 Queensway and will provide infrastructure access to developable land for business use. The gateway road will also serve to relieve the existing road network, allowing the closure of the Junction Road junctions with Sedlescombe Rd (A21) and the Ridge West (A2100).
CampbellReith was responsible for the principal highway and infrastructure alignment designs, utility investigations, desktop ground conditions and flood risk assessments for the proposed alignment.
The highway alignment itself includes a new roundabout at each end of the gateway providing access off both the A21 and B2092. A third roundabout has been designed within the gateway to provide access onto the proposed future development sites.
CampbellReith has also been responsible for land ownership investigations and, having identified that areas of the proposed land take include unregistered land are progressing the design of the road on a combined Section 38, Section 278 and Section 228 adoption principle.
