Forecast / modelling / appraisals
Our transport modellers provide accurate forecasts of expected flows on sub-regional and local transport networks through which we assess new transport links, reconfigured junctions and the strategies for uplifting streetscapes including the reallocation of road space. Our modelling and forecasting have informed appraisals and supported transport assessments for new developments and transport projects.
We carry out full multi-modal forecasting and have the skills and capability to model different modes of transport. Our flexible approach to modelling ensures we effectively model hierarchies of movement or develop strategies to balance needs on transport networks between walking, cycling, public transport and general traffic.
We are experienced in preparing models using industry standard analysis tools. As well as modelling we ensure options are fully appraised through screening against policy and objectives criteria through a goals achievement matrix to ensure recommended options and strategies are fully justified.
