Traffic and Transport
Connectivity is central to our proposals for Cokerhurst Farm. Our proposed development is designed to integrate with existing and new communities in the immediate area.
We’ve worked closely with Somerset County Council to develop a comprehensive transport strategy to reduce the amount of traffic generated by the proposed development and the associated impact on surrounding roads and junctions.
Our proposed development is designed to integrate with existing and new communities in the immediate area via footpaths, cycleways and public transport with traffic impact managed and mitigated accordingly.
- Traffic impact from the development proposals is being given full and detailed consideration as part of extensive Transport Assessments.
- As required, off site junction mitigation proposals will be delivered as part of the development proposals.
- A new traffic signal junction will be delivered from the A39 Quantock Road and will serve both Land to the North and Land to the South of the A39. The Land to the North of the A39 will also be served by an additional access point further to the east from the A39 Quantock Road and will take the form of a T-junction with right turn lane.
- A limited access serving public transport and emergency vehicles will be provided from Inwood Road and this will be enforced by CCTV monitoring.
- A new bus service will be delivered by the development proposals and will travel between Inwood Road and the A39 through the development area. Internal roads will be designed accordingly, and new bus stops will be provided within the development and on Inwood Road.
- The site is crossed by a single public right of way which is to be incorporated into the masterplan. Development of the site will provide numerous on road and off-road footpath and cycleway routes providing links between the A39, Inwood Road and Wembdon Hill.
Our masterplan shows the layout of our proposals for the creation of around 625 new homes.Click to Enlarge →
