Roads & Highways

Roads & Highways

Our experience in highway design ranges from estate road design to major interchange improvements.

Our involvement may be a simple crossover agreement to gain access to a small development to designing a new link road to serve 1200 units.

With developments scattered across much of the country, JMS have experience in dealing with many of the Highways & Water authorities. In most cases this liaison will involve gaining approvals for onsite Section 38 Agreements as well as off site Section 278 Agreements.

JMS have the expertise and most up to date design software required to deliver all types of carriageway design.

Drainage and SuDs


Although the Code for Sustainable Homes has now been withdrawn, the principles and requirement to demonstrate minimal impact from development remain.

JMS have wide experience of all forms of Sustainable Drainage systems (SuDS) from the use of private and adoptable permeable paving to wet and dry swales, infiltration and detention ponds, the use of landscaping to convey and clean surface water.

If designed in from inception, SuDS schemes can offer a very economical drainage solution with added value and ecological benefits.

Transport Planning

Travel Plans

JMS can provide an all-in-one pre-application Transport Planning service to assist developments in meeting requirements to promote and encourage the use of sustainable transport modes.

In consultation with the Local Highway Authority, we can prepare a Transport Assessment or Transport Statement to be submitted in support of a planning application, comprising an assessment of the likely trip generations of a development proposal and, where necessary, conduct a full assessment of the impact on the local highway network and design mitigation measures in conjunction with our Civil Engineering team.

JMS can also design bespoke Travel Plans to meet Local Authority approval and assist users of a development in making sustainable transport choices.
