National Transport Authority - Project Highlights

Some of the major model development projects undertaken by SYSTRA include:

  • Regional Model Scoping
    This involved a year long period of consultation with the NTA to define the proceeding programme of model development based on a thorough analysis of how transport modelling best supports its remit
  • National Demand Forecasting Model
    This system converts planning forecasts (e.g. demographics and land use) into estimates of levels of trip making.
  • Regional Model System Development
    5 regional models were developed to cover every city-region (e.g. Cork, Limerick, Galway, Waterford cities and regions); this part of the commission is concerned with efficient, coordinated delivery and rapid development of these models through the application of repeatable techniques and methods development out of the ERM (Dublin) modelling project.
  • Metro North Business Case
    A project to pilot the use of the new ERM model and compare business case measures (e.g. CBA / TUBA outputs) to corresponding outputs developed using the pre-existing Greater Dublin Area model.
