Munro’s Corner, Andover

A good example of the S278 highway design works that we do here at Paul Basham Associates, this scheme of multiple retail units and a drive through restaurant is now up and running at Munro’s Corner, Andover.

The brief

Paul Basham Associates were instructed to manage the S278 submission and design for two new access points onto the A3057 and improvements to an existing access on New Street.

Our approach

Our Engineers undertook the detailed highway design and assisted in the delivery of the scheme. In managing the S278 submission, our transport team provided a NMU report including a detailed walk over of the site to assess both the proposed facilities for non –motorised users. With the proposed uses generating high levels of both vehicle and pedestrian traffic, the design stage was crucial and required careful planning.

Assistance and support was provided throughout the construction phase and a Stage 3 Road Safety Audit followed by ‘As-built’ drawings.

The result

We negotiated full technical approval and legal agreement for the S278 Highway Works in early 2016 and the retail units and drive-thru were in operation shortly therefore after. We have recently driven by for a burger and admired our design in action.
