Event Takeaway: Modelling for All Modes

Event Takeaway

Domas Zemaitis

14/02/2019

Our event takeaways are compiled into a useful booklet that summarises our year’s events and offer a useful glimpse into the excellent ideas, wonderful examples and challenging propositions we have enjoyed. You can visit our Resource page to download a copy of past Takeaways.

Here are the main takeaways from our Modelling for All Modes event:


  • Transport modelling helps predict the impact and maximise the benefits of future schemes. Without them, transport projects may not have sufficient capacity to cope with future demand.

     

  • Set a clear brief for your traffic model to prevent ambiguity down the line and increase the likelihood of producing a model which is fit for purpose.

     

  • TfL’s City Planner Tool is available for all boroughs to use, to identify those areas where public realm and transport projects can deliver better connected walking and cycling routes. You can request access here.

  • Data has its limitations. It doesn’t always show the context of the place and what the street is actually like. Make sure you visit your site at peak and non-peak periods, during the week and over the weekend to ensure you have a good understanding of all forms of movement rather than relying solely on data and technology.

     

  • Identify potential new routes by looking at where people are and are not currently walking or cycling. Use this information to improve existing routes and create new ones where they are needed.
