Manly Oval Car Park Traffic Assessment Review

We were commissioned by Roads & Maritime Services (RMS) to review a Paramics microsimulation model to help Manly Council (now Northern Beaches Council) assess the impacts of the proposed car park at Manly Oval. Manly Council had commissioned a model of the Manly town centre and its surrounding road network. Our role was to audit the microsimulation and SIDRA modelling and comment on whether the models were fit-for-purpose. We compared the model assumptions and model development process to industry best practice and commented on whether the models had been developed in accordance with the RMS’ Traffic Modelling Guidelines. We also commented on the traffic assumptions and car park operation more generally and highlighted any issues or non-conformances we identified during our audit.
