Glasgow City Centre Paramics Discovery Model

SYSTRA Limited has been working with Glasgow City Council, to update the 2007 Glasgow City Centre S-Paramics Model to Paramics Discovery. The model covers Glasgow City Centre bounded by the M8 to the north and the River Clyde to the South.

The model features AM, Inter Peak and PM periods and each period includes over 80,000 vehicles. In addition, there are over 200 bus services that run to, from or through Glasgow City Centre included in the model.

The Paramics Discovery model will be used to test a wide range of options. These include; assessing the traffic impacts of the Glasgow City Centre Avenues project and air quality improvement strategies.
