Opus’ traffic modelling specialists provide effective transportation modelling and economic evaluation solutions, using a wide range of macro, micro and intersection simulation models. This supports a range of master planning and transportation planning scenarios, and integrates fully with our Planning and Environmental teams.
We have experts in all aspects of transportation modelling within New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the UK, and they have delivered many major land use assessments and evaluation of transportation infrastructure projects.
Four stage and network assignment modelling is used to assess the macro effects of new projects and land use changes. This recognises the link between land use, urban design and transportation planning. Micro simulation modelling is used to assess the effectiveness of projects and improvements at a vehicular level with realistic visual simulation which greatly assists the consultation process. Intersection modelling and optimisation is also undertaken to provide operational improvements.
