GCA offers a complete traffic engineering, road and highway engineering design service from an initial feasibility report to detailed design and implementation. Where required, we can even provide a supervision service through to scheme opening.

We utilise the latest design and project management techniques to ensure the scheme design takes into consideration the financial, time and physical restrictions involved.

  • Pavement Design – Impermeable or Permeable
  • Public Transport Facilities
  • Traffic Management Schemes



On former railway land adjacent to the main A52 between Derby and Nottingham GCA undertook the design of all the Civil and Structural Engineering work.  Access to the site off the A52 required the construction of a long lead in embankment and a bridge.

The ground conditions were poor requiring extensive piling, and to provide surface water drainage a large pumping station and outfall to the river Derwent was provided.
