Sheffield Motorway Service Area
DTA was appointed by Extra Motorway Service Area Group to assess the transport implications of a proposed new Motorway Service Area to the south west of Junction 35 of the M1 near Sheffield. The proposals included the creation of a new direct access off the M1 Junction 35 roundabout, a petrol filling station, parking for cars, HGVs, coaches and caravans, a 100 bed hotel, and a picnic area with landscaping.
DTA’s input to the project included the preparation of a Transport Assessment, Travel Plan, and EIA Chapter, as well as undertaking detailed discussions with Highways England (formally the Highways Agency) and Sheffield City Council. A key part of these discussions was focussed on agreeing the vehicle access arrangements for the site.
