How much extra HGV traffic will the site generate?
The operation of the ERF will generate between one and two trucks per hour. However vehicles associated with the quarrying activities will cease.
What impact will the extra traffic have?
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 during construction and operational phases. The traffic assessment will be undertaken in accordance with recognised guidance issued by Welsh Government, and will 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.
