A macroscopic model of the whole of Middlesbrough with six microsimulation subnetworks covering the town centre and key corridors. The model enables both strategic and detailed local analysis of different transport interventions and development proposals to understand impacts and improve decision making.
The Middlesbrough Aimsun model has been used to assess the impact of a number of development proposals across the borough, rapidly becoming the method of choice for Highways Development Control to understand both the impacts of developments in isolation as well as the cumulative effects of all developments and transport proposals across the network.
Other key uses for the model include assessing the impact of the Local Plan, informing the Infrastructure Delivery Plan and assessing transport proposals for Middlesbrough’s Future High Street Fund bid, including interfacing the model with TUBA and COBALT to undertake cost-benefit analysis.
