We can create 3D Models which can be viewed as a ‘fly through’; guiding the client/user through the model to view everything from traffic management and new road layouts, improving the understanding of proposed works and its effect on vehicles and pedestrians.
The benefit of 2D traffic management drawings are that we can see distances and layout very quickly in order to familiarise ourselves with the scheme , whereas 3D modelling allows the user to see the road layout from a driver perspective which not only improves a users understanding of the design but also highlights the possible dangers reinforcing the need for traffic management, advanced warning signs and any other general safety measures.
Furthermore, 3D Modelling allows for an accurate depiction of the real world and how we use it; moreover how we would manoeuvre through it as a road user whilst works are ongoing. 3D Models allow us to see the topography of the land which is very useful for sign and taper locations avoiding any potential hazards at the design stage when proposing any traffic management.
This is an example of a 3D model we produced for the A14. This is a flythrough of just a portion of the model we created, although when sent to the client/user; it can be scrolled through on the screen if needed, useful for stakeholder meetings, training, inductions, etc.
