Once our Transport Consulting Team have completed the preliminary planning for your heavy transport project, a test drive of the proposed abnormal load route can be undertaken. Used for wind turbine components and abnormal loads, these heavy transport test drives provide a detailed route analysis to show areas where route modifications are required to enable the passage of the proposed vehicle and load. The loaded vehicles simulate the correct dimensions of the abnormal loads, as would be required for the actual movement and any projections either in length, width or height are assembled to the trailer. All projections are designed to allow for easy modifications and reduction in size if required whilst on the public roads, this allows for quicker and smoother manoeuvrability reducing the impact on other road users. ** Click for more **

Our Transport Consulting experts possess the knowledge, experience and skills to analyse the surrounding topography and the impact of abnormal loads & heavy transport projects on the surrounding environment. Collett Transport Consulting topographical surveys are used to map the contours of the ground and existing features to assist with route planning and necessary modifications for abnormal load & heavy transport projects. This process, undertaken in the early days of our planning allows us to identifying any features which which could potentially impact on any abnormal load or heavy transport projects. The data gathered by Collett Transport Consulting from site visits and swept path analysis, coupled with data gathered during topographical surveys, provides the most accurate indication of any third party land requirements, road widening or pinch points along the route.

When undertaking visual route inspections our Transport Consulting Team consider gradients for delivery, supply Ordnance Survey grid referencing and provide a conclusion of the route(s) inspected. ur visual route inspections begin with the undertaking of a desk based study. Collett Transport Consulting will identify possible loading configurations based on our extensive knowledge and experience of abnormal load and heavy transport projects. Our Transport Consulting visual route inspections identify the loading configurations for each abnormal load and the most suitable route, unless potential routes have already been identified by our client. Our Team will then carry out site visits to determine the feasibility of the identified heavy transport route(s) and to highlight any potential pinch points which could impact on the loaded vehicle. During the site survey the horizontal and vertical alignment of the routes will be assessed in relation to the abnormal load being transported.

Collett Consulting route access surveys take into account horizontal and vertical alignments, weight and dimensional issues across all types of roads, structures and environments. Used extensively for heavy transport, abnormal loads and wind turbine components, Collett Consulting's detailed route access surveys provide in-depth route analysis to identify the most suitable delivery path. Our route access surveys provide an outlined analysis of how your project, cargo or components will be delivered to their destination. With wind turbine blades increasing in size and the development of new equipment to facilitate heavy transport, it's imperative that delivery routes from port to pad site are surveyed in their entirety for any restrictions that could impact on delivery. Used extensively throughout the renewable energy industry for identifying the safest route for wind turbine components, our surveys provide an in depth route analysis of the entire proposed route for abnormal loads.
