A26 Dualling: Glarryford to A44 Drones Road junction - Stage 1 Scheme assessment report

Date published: 01 October 2007

To consider all available options a scheme assessment was carried out.  This is a three stage procedure, which compares various options based on the government’s five key transport objectives of environment, safety, economy, integration and accessibility.


This begins with an examination of broadly defined routes, progressing through the selection of a ‘preferred route’ to detailed environmental assessment and design.

A Stage 1 ‘Preliminary Options’ assessment of twelve viable routes was carried out.  This resulted in five routes (namely orange, blue, yellow, green and red) being taken forward to Stage 2.
