Paramics Discovery used to model Douglas, Isle of Man

SYSTRA Limited has been working with the Department of Infrastructure (DoI), Isle of Man Government to update the 2009 Lower Douglas S-Paramics Model to Paramics Discovery. The model has been extended to include the wider area of Douglas including the road network out to the areas of Spring Valley, Ballanard, Hillberry, Birch Hill and Onchan.

The Paramics Discovery model has been used to test proposed refurbishment works for the Douglas Promenade, including alterations to the highway layout, kerbside parking and the relocation of the horse-drawn tram tracks between Peveril Square and King Edward Road.

It will also be used to test future year development proposals by the DoI including the Strategic Plan: Island Development Plan – Area Plan for the East.
