Visual Route Inspection Reports

Visual Route Inspections • Heavy Transport • Abnormal Loads • Loading Configurations

Our visual route inspections begin with the undertaking of a desk based study to identify possible loading configurations based on our extensive knowledge and experience of heavy transport projects and abnormal loads. 


These visual route inspections identify the loading configurations for each abnormal load and the most suitable route for loaded vehicles unless potential routes have already been identified by our client.

Our team will then carry out site visits to determine the feasibility of the identified heavy transport route(s) and to highlight any potential pinch points which could impact on the loaded vehicle.  During the site survey the horizontal and vertical alignment of the routes will be assessed in relation to the abnormal load being transported.

Where possible mitigation measures will be suggested along the identified route(s).  Collett consulting's experience of previous projects will be called upon to identify the most suitable route and methods of transport to combat issues such as low bridges, crests, weight restrictions and width issues.  Both specialist and standard methods of heavy transport will be considered.

A standard visual route inspections will highlight potential land-take & road widening requirements, ground clearance issues and head room restrictions.  Our team will consider gradients for delivery, supply Ordnance Survey grid referencing and provide a conclusion of the route(s) inspected complete with photographic evidence.
