Paramics Discovery used to assess the impact of extreme weather in the Forth Estuary

SYSTRA Ltd has developed The Forth Bridges Paramics Discovery Model for Transport ScotlandThe purpose of the model is to assess restrictions or closures on the Queensferry Crossing and the Clackmannanshire & Kincardine Bridges in the event of extreme weather conditions or potential maintenance works.

The purpose of the model is to assess restrictions or closures on the Queensferry Crossing and the Clackmannanshire & Kincardine Bridges in the event of extreme weather conditions or potential maintenance works.

The model provides a tool to estimate the disruption across the Forth Estuary that bridge closures or traffic management would cause.

The Paramics Discovery model helps identify areas of the network that will be most affected by closures, and provide possible mitigation solutions.
