Cross Tay Link Road
For many years traffic on and around Perth’s two road bridges over the river Tay has caused severe congestion for local residents and visitors. The new Cross Tay Link Road will ease this congestion to reduce local journey times and help longer distance commuters avoid the city centre bridges.
Sweco’s multi-disciplinary team is undertaking a DMRB Stage 3 Design and Environmental Impact Assessment which includes specialists in Landscape, Civil & Structural Engineering, Highways, Hydrology, Ecology, Archaeology, EIA, Carbon, Agriculture & Forestry and Project Management. The landscape team has a critical role in the delivery of the project undertaking a full Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment; including verified photomontage visualisations, and a detailed landscape design for the scheme which is located within a nationally recognised ‘Garden and Designed Landscape’. In addition to the road corridor landscape, the detailed design also includes the creation of new woodland habitats, extensive SUDS with integrated wetlands and a green bridge.
Our landscape solutions for this project include:
- Landscape and visual impact assessment
- Detailed design
- Stakeholder engagement
- Ecology & habitat creation
- Landscape management plans
