Leeds Aimsun Model
Client: CEG and Leeds City Council
A two-tier microsimulation model of Leeds city centre capable of providing detailed analysis of different transport interventions to understand impacts and improve decision making.
Developed in collaboration with our strategic development partners, CEG and Leeds City Council, the model incorporates macroscopic and microscopic tiers. This provides both fast, higher level simulation and more detailed representations of driver behaviour along with a visual representation of vehicles and pedestrians on the network, allowing full analysis of the impacts of congestion and different transport interventions.
The Leeds Aimsun model has been used to inform and design a wide range of projects in conjunction with Leeds City Council and its partners including LPTIP (as part of the Connecting Leeds Programme), Armley Gyratory and the Housing Infrastructure Fund (HIF). It has also been used to support CEG’s development interests in the Temple quarter.
