OverviewThis webinar will discuss a suite of transport models, covering the whole of Wales. The models represent car, bus and rail, as well as walking and cycling for access to rail stations and bus stops.
The webinar is organised by the ICE Wales Cymru Transportation Engineering Group (TEG) and will be chaired by Rhian Watts, Chair, TEG.
Transport for Wales (TfW), working with the Welsh Government (WG), has developed a suite of transport models that covers the whole of Wales. The models represent car, bus and rail, as well as walking and cycling for access to rail stations and bus stops. The models contain information on the trips that people make by each form of transport and are a key part for delivering the future of transport in Wales.
The Wales Regional Transport Models will give us a better understanding of how the entire transport system works, allow us to assess the likely transport impact of different development scenarios and provide a means of testing a variety of new transport solutions so that we can propose schemes that make a positive difference to people’s lives.
The regional models are playing a key part in delivering key schemes and policies in Wales ranging from the Metro Schemes to understanding the impact of Covid-19 on the network and the way in which travel has changed. The presentation will introduce the Regional Models and present some key assessments being undertaken with TfW and WG.
