3D Modelling for Improved Traffic Management Visualisation – Example A14

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.

A329 London Road Improvements – Martins Heron Roundabout, Bracknell

TM Plans were requested by CD Traffic Management to design a full road closure of all the approaches to Martins Heron Roundabout in Bracknell with 4 separate diversion routes. This drawing comes on the back of multiple phase TM Plans we provided last year to assist with the construction of the new road layout.
The full road closure will be in place for the installation of intelligent permanent signals which is programmed to finish by February 2019.
The works would have been completed sooner but due to to a well-publicised water leak and issues with underground utilities it has prolonged the contract into the new year.
TM Plans has assisted and overseen the design of over a dozen drawings for this project.
