Topographical Surveys

Our Transport Consulting experts possess the knowledge, experience and skills to analyse the surrounding topography and the impact of abnormal loads & heavy transport projects on the surrounding environment.

Transport Consulting Topographical Surveys & Abnormal Load Route Planning

Collett Transport Consulting topographical surveys are used to map the contours of the ground and existing features to assist with route planning and necessary modifications for abnormal load & heavy transport projects.


This process, undertaken in the early days of our planning allows us to identifying any features which which could potentially impact on any abnormal load or heavy transport movement.

The data gathered by Collett Transport Consulting from site visits and swept path analysis, coupled with topographical survey data, provides the most accurate indication of any third party land requirements, road widening or pinch points along the route.

Heavy Transport Consulting Abnormal Load Test Drives

Utilising topographical surveys allows us to examine any proposed route(s) in detail, mapping the contours of the ground and existing features on the surface of the earth. 

Armed with all this data our Transport Consulting Teams can undertake expert route planning for the heavy transport of your cargo and identify any impact the movement of abnormal loads would have on the surrounding environment, trees, buildings, street furniture, streets, walkways, manholes and retaining walls and highlight any necessary modifications.  If requested we can also obtain details of Highway Boundaries.

This analysis shows us in detail any topography which may impact on the safe passage of the loaded vehicle and allows us to plan accordingly ahead of the abnormal load or heavy transport taking place.
