Highway Design & Civil Engineering

Whether off-site or on-site, highway infrastructure is a critical component to the delivery of any proposed development. Section 278 agreements provide the legal mechanism required to carry out highway alterations on the existing network, whilst Section 38 agreements secure new road adoption by the highway authority. 

We continue to work with many different developers across all land use categories and numerous highway authority regions. From minor access works, to large roundabout and signal junction interchanges; we understand the importance of how S278/S38 agreements fit in with our clients’ needs from development start to site completion.
