The site is located within the residential growth zone of Ringwood adjacent to the Ringwood Bypass. The high density development compromises private dwellings and serviced apartments over 16 storeys.
MGA prepared a traffic and transport impact assessment for this gateway icon and landmark development. Our collaboration with the project team resulted in an efficient ground floor plan to maximise pedestrian amenity at the site entrance and improved pedestrian and bicycle connections to the surrounding retail premises, road network and parks.
Vehicle access is provided via an existing easement connecting to Maroondah Highway with the site layout incorporating a pick-up and drop-off area for the serviced apartments via a loop road for improved circulation. We also reviewed the adequacy of parking provisions and assessed the traffic impacts of the adjoining intersections.
