Reconfiguration of Salt Island, Holyhead Port
RPS was involved in assessing the operational efficiency of the roads, parking and internal layout at Holyhead Port in Wales.
Holyhead Port holds significant economic importance generating high volumes of commercial and freight traffic. The project involves reworking the layout from initial concept through design and to construction completion. The overall scheme includes the analysis of the current port access/egress and trailer handling operations, identifying inefficiencies and developing a design to allow for more efficient use of the space available and future proof the port for an unaccompanied freight management system.

We utilised our knowledge and experience in Transport Master Planning, Traffic Modelling and Engineering to develop an appropriate layout for the site. The needs of all of the users on the site had to be accommodated within the design and assessment process.
Following Contractor procurement, we used our expertise to effectively carry out the Contract Administration, whilst providing site supervision and design support during the construction works. As Principal Designer, in accordance with CDM Regulations, we planned, managed, monitored and co-ordinated health & safety in the pre-construction phase, liaised with the Principal Contractor in regards health and safety management during construction and managed the completion of all required CDM documentation.
Throughout, we collaborated with colleagues in Ecology and Environment to ensure that any Port-residing wildlife or habitats and existing archaeology would not be impacted by the construction. The scheme required significant liaison between all stakeholders to ensure that the design delivered for all interested parties and that all necessary permits were obtained for the works.
