Internationaal webinar verkeersmodellen

Als mobiliteitsexpert is het soms lastig in te schatten wanneer je het beste een verkeersmodel kunt inzetten en wat de verschillende verkeersmodellen allemaal voor je kunnen betekenen. Op 1 juni organiseert Sweco een Internationaal verkeersmodellen Webinar. Werk je als adviseur, modelleur of beleidsmaker en zet je weleens een verkeersmodel in bij een project? Dan is deze Webinar echt iets voor jou.

Op het programma staan verschillende type projecten, modelpakketten en manieren van toepassen. Dit varieert van een fiets- en voetgangerssimulatie tot macroscopische modeltoepassingen.

Deelname is kosteloos.

Internationaal webinar

Sweco heeft, zoals je weet, veel kennis en ervaring met verkeersmodellen. Dat hebben we niet alleen in Nederland, maar ook daarbuiten. Daarom organiseren we de Modellendag dit jaar internationaal. Twee wegbeheerders en een aantal Sweco experts vanuit o.a. Nederland, Zweden, het Verenigd Koninkrijk, België en Finland nemen je in een interactief webinar mee in de boeiende wereld van verkeersmodellen. Aangezien het een internationaal webinar is, worden alle presentaties in het Engels gegeven.

Het belooft een leerzaam event te worden waarbij we verschillende toepassingen laten zien. Daarbij is het tevens mogelijk om in gesprek te komen met collega wegbeheerders uit andere landen.

Wanneer?

Het webinar vindt plaats op woensdag 1 juni. Je kunt het webinar bijwonen via Wonder.me, van 13:00 – 16:00 uur

Economic Assessment A57/A77 in Scotland

Country: Scotland
Client: Dumfries & Galloway, South Ayrshire and Mid & East Antrim Borough Councils
Software: Cube

Description:
Dumfries & Galloway, South Ayrshire and Mid & East Antrim Borough Councils have jointly appointed Sweco as Lead Consultant to undertake a review of the potential impacts of improving the A75 and A77 on the local and regional economy. Sweco will work in close collaboration with the three Councils and the respective local businesses and communities to accurately represent the economic and traffic impacts of improving the A75 and A77 trunk roads.

Improving traffic safety in the main shopping street of The Hague

Country: The Netherlands
Client: Municipality of The Hague
Software: Vissim

Description:
Grote Marktstraat is the busiest shopping street in The Hague. Currently the street is being used for two conflicting purposes respectively – pedestrians shopping and cyclists going from A to B. With cyclists valuing speed and pedestrians valuing the freedom to move and cross wherever they like, this can lead to unsafe situations and more importantly, two unhappy groups of people. The solution is to remove bikes from the shopping street and give them a parallel option that, in turn, can be upgraded to a cycle street where cyclists have priority over cars. Numerous scenarios have been tested using a microscopic traffic model to help determine the effects of this change.

Traffic safety analysis of highways in Belgium

Country: Belgium
Client: Flemish Government and Lantis
Software: Vissim

Description:
We used two different approaches for comparing scenario’s according to traffic safety with microsimulation in Vissim. With this approach it is possible to analyze and compare different schemes of highway design on safety and apply broadly for a variety of locations.

Pedestrian simulation for Uppsala Central Station

Country: Sweden
Client: Trafikverket
Software: Viswalk

Description:
Sustainability planning is key for Sweco and our clients. Our analysts combine the stakeholder’s perspective with future possible modifications to the built environment. In this project we evaluated future alternative scenarios for infrastructure investments, due to the expected increase in the number of travelers at the Central Station of Uppsala. These scenarios corresponded with years 2040 and 2050 answering the following questions:

  • Will the existing infrastructure that connects the platforms be able to handle the expected number of travelers in 2050?
  • How will this increased demand affect travel time for pedestrians?
  • How will the level of service (LOS) for pedestrians be affected?

Using pedestrian simulations, our group of experts built a PTV Viswalk model of the station where base scenario and alternative scenarios were coded and ran. The results assisted our clients in the decision-making process and helped us to evaluate how feasible and sustainable the proposed modifications would be.

Capacity study for a turbo roundabout in the municipality of Riihimäki

Country: Finland
Client: Riihimäen kaupunki
Software: Vissim

Description:
It has been determined that by 2040, the capacity of the current single-lane roundabout will be insufficient. Therefore, we have carried out studies that test the feasibility of a turbo roundabout based on 2040 traffic volumes, using a microsimulation model in Vissim.

Demand Responsive Transport solutions for Public Transport, Brazil

Country: Sweden/Brazil
Client: URBS (Curitiba Municipal Agency in charge of the Integrate Transport Network) & KTH
Software: Visum

Description:
Mobility as a Service and intermodal transportation are envisioned to be the main developments to help reduce the volume of private car ridership within cities. In some zones with low demand density, these types of services are provided by operators looking to offer better accessibility with more agile routes, and flexible schedules. However, Demand Responsive Transport (DRT) is prone to failure (50% of DRT start-ups fail before their first 7 years of operation) due to high operational costs.

In this project we proposed a zone case study in Curitiba, Brazil, where the implementation of DRT services is used to feed the main Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) West Line. With the use of macroscopic modelling using PTV Visum, the generalised cost of the base and two alternative scenarios are compared. The results support public agencies and operators in the decision-making process, where the complementary services are assessed based on the operational cost, user costs, and the environmental costs. The results will also help us evaluate if replacing conventional feeder lines to DRT is suitable.

Greener cities: creating room for people in Rotterdam

Country: The Netherlands
Client: Municipality of Rotterdam
Software: Paramics

Description:
In the center of Rotterdam, the municipality decided to completely redo a key roundabout. This car-oriented traffic junction will be transformed into a square designed for pedestrians and cyclists. This will result in a significant reduction in capacity and convenience for the cars, which will be moved elsewhere. The effects of this transformation will be measured using the city’s own microscopic traffic model to determine if issues occurs elsewhere in the city due to this project.

Worcestershire Strategic Transport Model

Country: England
Client: Worcestershire County Council
Software: Visum

Description:
This project involves the development of a new strategic multi-modal model for Worcestershire using the PTV VISUM software package. The initial goals to build a model for local government for the appraisal of major new highway schemes. The model will become an invaluable tool for testing the impact of transport schemes and new developments.
