Abstract

Bath is the UK's only world heritage city. Unfortunately, tourists travelling from London and the South East could only approach the city via narrow roads through the villages of Batheaston and Swainswick leading to decades of traffic congestion, However, after more than 50 years of planning, a hard-fought public inquiry and a pound 5 million battle with road protestors, the 4.3 km Batheaston/Swainswick bypass finally opened to traffic in May 1996-four months early. In addition to thescheme's environmental sensitivity, it also had to cross the River Avon twice and traverse two major landslips. Visual intrusion was minimized by putting 1.7 km of the route in a diaphragm-walled cutting, significant cost savings on which were achieved using value engineering and Peck's observational method.
