A1307 Safety Improvements Scheme, Cambridgeshire

Danaher & Walsh was appointed by Skanska to carry out two adjacent highway safety improvement schemes on the A1307 near Babraham, Cambridgeshire.

Project Overview

Scheme 6 comprised the construction of a new signalised crossing on the A1307 at the Babraham Research Campus roundabout, linking a new multi-user path to Babraham village.

Work involved the provision of a new toucan crossing with equestrian facilities on the eastern approach to the roundabout and the replacement of all existing street lighting. An additional 120m footway was constructed to the west of the roundabout.

By coincidence, the Babraham Research Campus roundabout was originally constructed by Danaher & Walsh in 2009.

Scheme 7 comprised the construction of a new bus lane along the A1307 towards Haverhill on the approach to the junction with the A11.

Safety improvements were made to the Babraham High Street junction, resulting in the cessation of right turns onto the A1307. Improved pedestrian crossing facilities were constructed on the A1307 adjacent to an existing bus stop.

A proactive working relationship was established with the client, including daily liaison. This approach resulted in schemes being delivered on time and on budget.

How did we do?

Works were undertaken in carefully planned phases, using traffic and pedestrian management to allow the progression of the works whilst minimise disruption to the public. The Urban 64 temporary traffic signal and control system was used on this scheme to optimise traffic flows.

Again, owing to the scheme’s location, in Leicester’s city centre and surrounded by numerous retail and entertainment premises, stakeholder liaison was absolutely critical to the success of this scheme.

Regular liaison was required with the numerous business premises located immediately adjacent to the works. As well as advising the proprietors of the nature and timescales of the works, in many cases it was practically necessary to coordinate with them for the works to be undertaken directly outside of their premises with absolutely minimal disruptions to business operations.

Initial letter drops informed the premises owners / proprietors about the works and provided contact details. Face-to-face visits were subsequently carried out by our Site Agent on a regular basis to facilitate constructive discussion regarding the works.

Our Site Agent worked closely with Leicester City Council Highways to coordinate traffic management and ensure minimal disruption to highway users and the general public.

Close liaison was also necessary with the wider Morgan Sindall contract team responsible for the construction of the new bus station, which was occurring at the same time as our works. Cooperation and coordination ensured that we did not impact on their works nor vice versa.

Outcomes

Meticulous planning of distinct works phases, together with a safe and effective system of traffic management, ensured that works progressed swiftly whilst minimising disruption to road users.

Despite the ambitious ten week works programme, which was scheduled to complete in time for the busy holiday season, Danaher & Walsh opened the roundabout to traffic two full weeks early.

Client Testimonial

Since Danaher & Walsh were appointed as the successful contractor for the A148

Felbrigg Roundabout scheme, the relationship that has been built between the two parties has been one that I would quantify as strong, collaborative and effective.
