M4 Metro West Luas Line F Vissim Traffic Study

OCSC were appointed by the Rail Procurement Agency to undertake a Vissim microsimulation assessment of the impact of a proposed light rail system on a major road intersection. The assessment studied the impacts of various at grade and grade separated alignments for two separate metro light rail and Luas tram lines through a major intersection. The study also included the alignment design of the two rail lines.

OCSC undertook the microsimulation modelling of the area and imposed simulated tram arrival rates on the road network in order to determine the impact of the scheme on the road network.
