In recent years it has become more common for clients to ask for a variety of "highway audits" at varying stages of scheme design and implementation.
TMS can carry out different types of audits for a variety of road users including cyclists, pedestrians, equestrians and people with disabilities.
Individual audits can be carried out for a variety of road users including cyclists, pedestrians, equestrians and people with disabilities. Alternatively they can be combined in a Non-Motorised User Audit (NMU).
In addition, a Quality Audit combines some or all of the individual audits and provides an overall assessment of a scheme.
Any of the above audit types may be required in addition to a Road Safety Audit within a particular scheme. It is the responsibility of the client to organise these audits, and to balance any conflicting recommendations.
In practice, whilst the Road Safety Audit is always an independent assessment, the above audits are often carried out by the Design Team. If this is the case, the other audits should be submitted to the Road Safety Auditor as part of the information for the Road Safety Audit.
TMS has extensive experience in carrying out all types of audits for a diverse range of clients throughout the UK, Ireland and internationally. Please refer to the links on the left of this page to find out more details about the specific types of audits we can carry out.
