Multi Modal Transport Model (MMTM)
We commissioned Warrington Multi Modal Transport Model (MMTM) in 2008.
Our partners included:
- Highways Agency
- North West Development Agency
- Homes and Communities Agency
- Peel Holdings
The model itself was developed by WSP consultants on our behalf and for other key partners.
The primary reason for developing the MMTM was to provide an evidence base to support and aid decision making regarding spatial development, transport infrastructure and services. With regards to the Local Planning Framework and specifically the Core Strategy, the model was used to test and understand the implications of different land use scenarios on travel demand.
This was achieved by identifying a series of strategic land use options for testing, with each relating to a different focus and level of development within the borough. Key outputs were then extracted from the MMTM to inform as to whether the amounts of development proposed would impact on transport infrastructure and travel times and to what extent.
