Success for LTP

Highways Reporters

Beverley based Local Transport Projects (LTP) has won new contracts in Northern Ireland and London.

Established in 2004, LTP provides transport planning, traffic engineering and highway design services to local government, developers, health providers and the education sector.

The company has recently begun work for Fermanagh & Omagh District Council on developing a high quality 4km cycle route in Enniskillen, working with council officers and other local stakeholders over a three-month period.

Andy Mayo (pictured right), LTP director, said: “We’re looking at how to include the best possible options on linking a large new college development to Enniskillen town centre, including cycle paths, quiet streets, off road routes and taking into consideration high quality surfaces and cyclists’ likely destinations.”

In London, LTP is in the middle of the transport planning and highway design for a primary schools extension programme for the London Borough of Hillingdon. This is for three primary schools in Hillingdon: Newnham Infant and Junior School, Hillside Infant and Junior School and Warrander Primary School.

LTP has also just put the finishing touches to a year-long project to produce a Motorcycle Highway Design Guide for Transport for London which sets out the key highway design requirements for motorcycle safety in London.

“Motorcyclists are a unique road user group which, for a variety of reasons, are at higher risk of being involved in a collision,” added Mr Mayo, who authored the report and covered key highway design issues for motorcyclists such as visibility, grip, road-side features, traffic calming and filtering.

Part of the contract has required LTP to provide motorcycle-related highway design training to transport technical staff managing the operation and design of highways at Transport for London and the London boroughs.

LTP recently hosted an industry open day for 100 guests and customers at its new 2,200 sq ft offices home at Armstrong House in Beverley’s Flemingate development overlooking Beverley Minster.

Tony Kirby (pictured left), LTP director, added: “These contracts and our new customers are part of our ongoing success and the continued growth which has seen us move into these new, larger offices.

“At the heart of that strong performance are Local Transport Project’s business guarantees showing how we approach each and every job, such as being competent, effective, expert, honest, involved, knowledgeable, open and transparent while giving excellent value.”
