If you thrive on delivering schemes, you will love Dartford. Working for an ambitious authority that is well and truly on the map, no two days will be the same. Located on the edge of London and at the heart of the Thames Gateway growth area, significant transport improvements and parking management schemes are required to support the high levels of growth taking place. Major transformational developments are being progressed across the Borough, in particular at Dartford Town Centre and Ebbsfleet Garden City. In parallel, the Council is developing its parking management plans to effectively manage the increasing demand on the highway for parking. There are particular pressures in and around Dartford Town Centre. The challenge is to design a scheme which deals with the multiple impacts of commuter parking near a transport hub, workers and visitors in the town centre and increasing pressure from new development.
We are looking for a Transport Engineer, on an 18-month fixed contract, to support the Principal Transport Planner to deliver comprehensive schemes to address these issues. As a qualified and experienced Transport Engineer, you will be instrumental in designing and implementing Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO’s). This will include identifying the requirements on the basis of parking surveys and public consultation, considering traffic management options, designing specific scheme proposals and implementing the TRO.
You will have extensive experience of designing, consulting on and delivering transport and parking management schemes with a proven record of implementing Traffic Regulation Orders and experience of the statutory consultation process. You will have strong knowledge of the relevant highway and traffic regulations including the Traffic Management Act 2004 and the Roads Traffic Regulations Act 1984. Apart from being proficient with Microsoft office, a good knowledge of the ‘ParkMap’ is required.
Post attracts a career average pension scheme, professional fee payment, some remote working, benefits package and generous leave entitlement. The Council’s offices are in a highly accessible location, next to Dartford station with frequent services from Central London (Oyster Card coverage) and North Kent. Road connections via the M25 and A2 are also excellent.
