Paramics Discovery used to test the impact of maintenance works on the Kincardine Bridge

The Kincardine Bridge forms part of the main connector of Kincardine in West Fife with the M90 Motorway at Rosyth. The route is used as the diversion for the Queensferry Crossing when traffic is restricted due to adverse weather.

Amey, who are responsible for the trunk road network in in the South East of Scotland, commissioned SYSTRA to update and upgrade the existing Paramics Microsimulation model with a view of using the model to test maintenance works on both the Kincardine Bridge and Clackmannanshire Bridge.

The new Paramics Discovery model will be used to assess the traffic impact in the Kincardine area when closing the A985 Kincardine Bridge while refurbishment works are undertaken.

The Paramics Discovery model will be used to assess:

- journey times and journey time reliability

- the consideration of parallel routes, particularly any which may be used for diversions during the construction phase; and

- the impact of closures on network operation

The calibrated Paramics Discovery model is ideal for testing the impact of any proposed closure on the Kincardine Bridge, or any works required as part of the bridge maintenance regime.
