Smithfield Development, September 2018
As a key ingredient of its regeneration agenda, Stoke-on-Trent City Council had an ambition to deliver a transformational new business quarter for the city.
The Smithfield development needed to focus on bringing the city together using its advantageous location in the heart of Stoke-on-Trent to provide a link between both new and existing areas of the city centre.
We, at RH Traffic Management, were tasked with designing, installing and maintaining the road closures on Broad Street to allow contractors to build the luxury apartment block and install the state-of-the-art wind baffles. The perforated metal panels, mounted on columns, were designed to prevent wind that is drawn down the facade of the building from reaching dangerous levels.
East/West Bus Station Demolition, August 2018
Development plans set out by our client show their long-term commitment to continually transform the city.
Multi-million-pound proposals were developed for a 3,500-seat city centre arena, which also include a public square, a hotel and a youth centre. This first stage required the demolition and site clearance of the old East-West Bus Station/Shopping Precinct.
We, at RH Traffic Management, were tasked with designing, installing and maintaining the road closures and footpath diversions on and around the precinct. We needed to provide contractors with safe working areas for the demolition works, whilst ensuring the safety of the public travelling past the site.
Peak District Public Footpath Repairs, July 2018
Our client, Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, is dedicated to looking after Staffordshire’s wildlife and wild places.
In a more unusual project, our team had to monitor the flight path of the helicopter which was transporting materials for the footpath repairs and control the traffic to ensure that no vehicles were below the helicopter when the materials were being carried over public highways.
A460 Mill Green Road Improvement Scheme For McArthurGlen Designer Outlet, June 2018
Road improvements were needed to allow the development of McArthurGlen’s new designer outlet site in Cannock.
Working alongside our partner, Amey plc, we at RH Traffic Management designed, installed and maintained the roadworks on and around the project.
We needed to provide contractors with safe working areas whilst ensuring the safety of the public traveling through the site. Working with our client, the local authority and Highways England we ensured journey times were disrupted minimally and that the project was delivered safely and on time, all of which were key elements of this project.
Phase I of the project will be home to over 80 premium and luxury brands, together with a range of restaurants and cafes, 1,800 car parking spaces, a children’s playground and a cycle parking area. Once Phase II is completed, the centre will provide 285,000 sq ft of retail space with 130 stores.
