TITLE
Control of on/off site transport interface - the ‘ right road’
ARTICLE
A right-hand drive principle has been applied to this site to help traffic flow. This move came out of a request by the local enforcement authority to produce vehicle movement plans.

As the site has grown, segregation has been achieved between the on-site traffic and off-site traffic. This has been achieved by separate roads on the site.

Driving on the right has created fewer ‘cross-over’ points, making the site safer.
