Perth freeway modelling

In May 2015, Aurecon was engaged by the Main Roads Western Australia (MRWA) Network Operations Directorate to develop the largest transport simulation model ever built in Western Australia. The initial model was 31km in length, 170 km2 in area, and covered of Perth's Northern Freeway and surrounding suburbs. A second stage was then commenced which further extended the model area to also cover the majority of the Perth’s Southern Freeway, resulting in a total modelled Freeway length of 82km. The model enabled the Main Roads Network Operations team to gain crucial insights into how the network’s infrastructure will perform in future years, and to understand the impact of proposed upgrades or developments. At the time the project pushed Aimsun’s pre-existing capabilities TSS has selected the Freeway Simulation Model as one of its flagship projects to present at its user group meetings around the world.
