Supporting award-winning development
An ambitious redevelopment of a 6.4 hectare site will create several hundred new high specification homes along the banks of the Grand Union Canal, breathing new life into a West London location. Multidisciplinary expertise was delivered by Motion for part of the award-winning regeneration project in Brentford Lock West.
As well as providing travel planning support in relation to Phase I of the project, the team designed and managed the S278 highway works on Commerce Road to improve access and frontage as part of Phase II. “Motion’s proven track record, combined with a good working relationship with the local authority, helped us to demonstrate there would be no detrimental impact on the road capacity. The team is providing ongoing consultancy advice and support with the application for Phase III,” explains John Robinson, Development Director at Muse.
According to Phil Bell, Managing Director at Motion, “The requirements of the project have demanded examination of every option and have truly pushed the boundaries of what is possible. The work has made the most of our experience in our three core disciplines – transport planning, travel planning and highway design.”
The residential units have been carefully designed to maximise the waterside aspect. The homes offer stylish living in a highly desirable location. The development is close to shops, leisure facilities, parks and waterside walkways. Works have also included basement car parking, footpath and towpath enhancements and landscaping.
