Major Schemes We have worked as a key member of a number of project teams to deliver Major Scheme Business Case submissions for the majority of highway schemes built in Greater Manchester over the last 20 years.

Ashton Northern Bypass Stage 2… Most recently, this has included highway modelling for the operational and economic appraisal of the Ashton Northern Bypass Stage 2 (currently under construction in Ashton Town Centre) and the final section of the Wigan Inner Relief Route around the west side of Wigan town centre.

Cross City Bus… majorschemeWe have just completed highway modelling and economic appraisal for the Best and Final Funding Bid for the TfGM Cross City Bus Scheme. This involved close working with colleagues in other parts of TfGM and rom our professional services framework to coordinate the transfer of data between the highway, public transport and demand models and to provide a WebTAG compliant appraisal for submission to the Department for Transport.

SEMMMS… We have a long standing role in undertaking forecasting and scheme appraisal to support the development of the SEMMMS Major Road Scheme by Stockport, Manchester City, and Cheshire East Councils in conjunction with a fourth partner – Manchester Airport plc. As part of a wider multi-disciplinary project team that includes framework transport consultants, we have used the GMSM and other parts of the GM Models suite to scenario test proposals for the major highway scheme to link Manchester Airport to the A6 at hazel Grove, via western and eastern extensions to the current A555 “MAELR” route at Handforth.
