TMS Engineers Harminder Aulak and Andy Coleman recently visited Heathrow Airport to carry out Road Safety Audits of the highways works associated with the new £2.5bn Terminal 2 building, which is due to open later this year. The scheme has progressed since the last visit by Harminder and Andy in 2012.
As can be expected with a major scheme such as this, the infrastructure works tend to be large scale and complex. At Heathrow, the central area roads had to be reconfigured and new junctions created to allow for the huge multi-storey car-park ramps to be installed.
In addition to the internal roads, TMS also safety audited the car-park layouts, bus station junctions and drop-off areas associated with the new terminal building. This project demonstrates that TMS can carry out road safety audits on private highway networks and car park layouts, as well as public highways.
Audit Team Leader Harminder said: “I didn’t need much persuading to carry out the audits at Heathrow, as I take a keen interest in aviation and flying. As can be expected, the site visit took longer than envisaged as there were too many planes to view!”
