We are working with our clients to support their staff deciding how to travel, as we slowly edge towards a new normal, in what continues to be a challenging time. Below is a summary of some of the ways we could support you and your staff consider your travel options.

Discounted cycle purchase
Supporting businesses in setting up the government cycle to work scheme, alternatively there are other discount schemes available where organisations, once registered, can offer staff the opportunity to purchase cycles at a discounted price.

Review on site infrastructure
We are well placed to critically review on site infrastructure, and make recommendations for improvements in terms of temporary cycle storage, internal storage for drying clothes, streamlining current access arrangements for pedestrians and cyclists and identifying where any improvements can be made for access.

Online resources
We are experienced at preparing dedicated travel websites, whereby information can be updated quickly and is readily accessible, a great online space where information can both be uploaded and downloaded.

Dedicated resources

We are working with our clients to support their staff deciding how to travel, as we slowly edge towards a new normal, in what continues to be a challenging time. Below is a summary of some of the ways we could support you and your staff consider your travel options.

Postcode analysis
This provides an understanding of where staff are travelling from and their associated travel options, at the moment the options for travel are likely to have changed as a consequence of COVID19 as opportunities for travel by public transport are reduced.

Personalised journey planning
In our role as Travel Plan Coordinator we often find ourselves speaking to staff about the constraints and considerations for travel on their journey to work. By having conversations on a 1:1 basis or providing information that is specific to a commute we can eliminate concerns or constraints and identify alternative options.

Bespoke travel guides
Information on walking; cycling; scooting and availability of public transport can be identified for a place of work and this information can be set out in a bespoke travel guide, this would be easy to read and digest but specific to your place of work and the local area.

On site engagement
As guidance is further relaxed there is an opportunity to return to sites and speak to staff on site, initially to focus on promoting the opportunities for walking and cycling.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has set out that cyclists will take priority over cars after lockdown.

Shapps told the Transport Select Committee “we saw an extraordinary 100 per cent increase in the number of people cycling during the week at the height of the lockdown and a 200 per cent increase at the weekend”.

He went on to say “we want to make sure we are prioritising how local authorities think about road space”. The ambition is to build road space around pedestrians and cyclists, rather than building it around cars.

The Transport Secretary hopes that the increase in bike usage will continue after lockdown. There are various schemes in place to maintain the current level of cyclists such as the £25m Bike Repair Scheme. The Bike Repair Scheme will issue £50 bike repair vouchers so people can get their old bikes road worthy again.

Bryan G Hall is excited to be working with GRIDSERVE Sustainable Energy Limited on a number of their Electric Forecourt® sites throughout the country.

An Electric Forecourt® is the new generation of filling station developed to meet existing and growing infrastructure demands of electric vehicle users, owners and operators. They provide a reliable, predominantly ultra-rapid EV charging facility supported by a range of ancillary services, such as coffee shop, convenience store and high-speed internet lounge designed to maximise the experience of charging and optimise the associated dwell-time.

Bryan G Hall has provided transport planning and highway design support for two of the planning applications that have recently been submitted in Norwich and Uckfield. We are currently advising on a number of other sites that GRIDSERVE is bringing forward, as well as advising on matters such as highways signage on sites that are due to open in the coming months to ensure that an Electric Forecourt® is easily located for users.

We are thrilled to be involved with this nationwide project that will help to the country to de-carbonise whilst also providing a much-needed network of charging infrastructure to support the existing and future uptake of electric vehicles.
