SEStran Regional Model
The SEStran Regional Model (SRM) is a multi-modal transport model which covers the main road and public transport network in the East of Scotland. Geographically, the model covers an area that extends from the Firth of Tay to the Scottish Borders and from the East of Edinburgh to Stirling. The coverage of the SRM is illustrated below.
The SRM contains road and public transport assignment models and park and ride and demand model processes. These provide a forecasting methodology to predict changes in travel demand and transport costs over time. The SRM also provides an appraisal tool that can be used to assess the operational, economic and environmental impact of transport schemes, policy proposals and development strategies.
The model was developed using SATURN and Cube Voyager software. The SRM reflects traffic and travel conditions in a 2007 Base Year. It also provides forecast year scenarios which predict transport-related impacts associated with various transport interventions and development plans.
