Project Examples - Road Schemes
A5 Omagh Throughpass Atkins undertook the assessment of environmental noise and vibration effects for the A5 Omagh Throughpass. Our work included assessment of the impacts of the scheme, the preparation of an Environmental Statement and giving Expert Witness evidence at the Public Inquiry for the scheme.
A21 Comber Bypass Atkins updated the environmental noise assessment published in the Environmental Statement for the scheme in line with actual traffic count data following the opening of the scheme. The purpose of the study was to the determine eligibility for Noise Insulation under the Noise Insulation Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1995. Calculations of the noise levels were undertaken using a three dimensional RoadNoise computer model.
A5 Strabane Bypass Atkins undertook the assessment for the A5 Strabane Bypass, including noise and vibration impacts. The proposal for the bypass scheme was to reduce traffic through Strabane and divert it onto a bypass. Our calculations of the noise and vibration impact where included in the Environmental Statement for the Scheme.
Noise Impacts and Mitigation on New and Existing Roads Atkins have an unrivalled expertise in evaluating the environmental noise and vibration impacts of new road schemes and road improvements, and identifying and developing noise mitigation to offset adverse impacts and also for noise hotspots on existing trunk roads and motorways.
In London assessment of 2km of the A406 in a very densely populated area with a major interchange
One such study on an existing road was undertaken for the Highways Agency on the M5 at Upton St Leonards. The project involved the design and contract preparation for a £1M barrier. We also provided information for, and attended the Public Exhibition and assisted with local liaison. Non-absorbent acoustic barriers are being installed for a 2km length of three-lane motorway near Gloucester. The majority of barriers are 3m high and were introduced in conjunction with reduced-noise carriageway surfacing.
