Route Access Surveys

Abnormal Loads • Transport Gradients • Lengthy Cargoes • Ordnance Survey

Used extensively for the delivery of wind turbine blades and lengthy cargoes, Collett consulting provide detailed route access surveys to identify the most suitable delivery route. These surveys take into account Ordnance Survey data and transport gradients to ensure the safe and efficient delivery of abnormal loads in a variety of environments.


Our route access surveys outline how your cargo or components will be delivered to their destination.  With wind turbine blades increasing in size and the development of new equipment to facilitate transport, it's imperative that delivery routes from port to pad site are surveyed in their entirety for any restrictions that could impact on delivery. Used extensively throughout the renewable energy industry for identifying the safest route for wind turbine blades and lengthy cargoes, these surveys analyse the entire route abnormal loads will travel from collection through to delivery.  Our team will take into account transport gradients, topography, street furniture and any other environmental factors to ensure that your cargo will be safe and secure at all times during transit.

These specialist route access surveys include photographic evidence and overview maps which highlight any potential pinch points or problem areas along any proposed route.  Our team also take into account Ordnance Survey grid referencing of these highlighted areas and consideration of gradients dependent on the dimensions and weight of the wind turbine component, lengthy cargo or abnormal loads being transported.

For complete wind farm developments and multiple cargoes, alternate routes may be proposed dependant on the components.

Our team can provide desk studies, site visits, loading arrangements, consultation with authorities and planning, Environmental Impact Assessments and advice on cost issues.
