1. With reference to the Designer’s outline drawing (HDC/716406A/011/01), discuss the factors you believe have been taken into account in the location of the access road shown.
2. Discuss the factors which affect the capacity of a road such as the main A64 York Road between chainages 0 and 300.
3. Identify what other junction types could have been used at this location. Compare and contrast these with the signal-controlled junction chosen by the Designer. You may use a table to present your answer (10 marks)
Killian Ngong, the module lecturer has argued that a roundabout would have been a better option for this development access.
4. Using route location principles, and the scaled plan provided, sketch a suitable alignment for your proposed access road into the development site incorporating a roundabout at the junction. This should extend for a minimum of 150m into the development and include a turning facility within the development site for construction vehicles.
