WILLIAMTOWN AIRPORT HOTEL AND STAGE 1 COMMERCIAL/INDUSTRIAL ESTATE
In June 2012 NTPE completed the Traffic Impact Assessment for a 95-room Mercure Hotel and a 50-room motel, together worth $19million, next to Newcastle Airport – the first accommodation at the expanding airport.
ANAMBAH AND RUTHERFORD BUSINESS PARK
The Anambah Business Park located on the West Side of Maitland, on 52 hectares of land is a joint venture between Hunter Land Pty Ltd and Royal Newcastle Aero Club.
NTPE was involved in preparing an overall Traffic Impact Assessment of the Business Parks and other commercial and residential developments in the surrounding area. This assessment has been the basis for identifying the road network upgrade works and the developer contributions required to see them constructed. Stage 1 was opened up at the end of 2007 after new 2 lane roundabout was built at the intersection of Anambah Rd and the New England Highway. This also involved the construction of a fourth leg to connect with Shipley Drive to the south which provided the opportunity for major bulky goods retail and industrial developments to proceed on the southern side of the New England Highway. The final stages of the Anambah Business Park required the construction of a second Roundabout at Kyle Street which was opened to traffic at the end of 2013.
NTPE played a key role in the Strategic Planning for the Hunter Expressway in the early 1990’s providing Predicted Traffic Volumes and detailed Benefit / Cost Analysis for the route. In recent years NTPE has been involved in Monitoring Traffic Flows and Travel Times on major routes both before and after the opening of the Expressway.
BRISBANE WATER DRIVE / MANNS ROAD, WEST GOSFORD
NTPE played a key role in the collection of Intersection Count, Origin/Destination and Travel Time Data used to develop the design of the upgrade works currently under construction at this major congestion point on the Central Coast road network.
CATALINA FESTIVAL 2014
One of the biggest community events held on the Lake this event attracts a crowd of up to 15000 people. In 2014 NTPE prepared the Traffic Management Plan for the event. The plan allowed for vehicles to access the site to establish the attractions and stalls before 9am. After 9am the plan provided an effective and efficient strategy the management of parking arrangements required to accommodate the large crowd as they arrived to enjoy the event.
SIDRA AND INTERSECTION DESIGN
NTPE has been engaged by RMS Hunter Region and Newcastle City Council to review and assess the performance of key intersections using SIDRA. The results of this analysis have then been used as the basis for Traffic Signal Designs prepared by NTPE for these sites.
