How much extra HGV traffic will the site generate?
A review of traffic numbers including peak flow and operational traffic, taking account of both current and future delivery patterns is being carried out as part of the planning process. This will continued to be reviewed as part of a robust assessment.
The EIA will examine HGV movements at the site entrance onto the A458, together with the existing road network in the vicinity of the site in terms of capacity (at both junctions and links) and safety. The traffic assessment will be undertaken in accordance with recognised guidance issued by Welsh Government, and consider both the construction and operational phases. Where appropriate measures will be proposed to:
- mitigate the impact of delays on the network, and at junctions;
- minimise disturbance to the transport network; and
- reduce impact on adjoining land uses and landowners.
