Heathrow Logistics Park, Feltham - RSA Stage 3
Following a call in inquiry the Secretary of State granted permission for 28,000m² of warehousing and industrial space at this site near Heathrow Airport. Major environmental improvements contributed to the case for allowing this Green Belt scheme.
Vectos was engaged to undertake a Stage 3 Road Safety Audit. The major issue was the removal of trees from an embankment which naturally protected a railway line. The trees prevented cars travelling over the railway bridge from leaving the carriageway on to the railway track. Once removed they were not shown to be replaced with a vehicle restraint system (VRS), so we insisted that this was rectified. A VRS system was subsequently designed and installed and we revisited the site to ensure it was done correctly and made further recommendations regarding the installation arrangement.
